Issue #16484 has been updated by shevegen (Robert A. Heiler).


I don't think I have used either one of them so I may not be the primary 
target audience either way.

I only remember having used telnet in the 1990s to connect to oldschool
text MUDs.:D But I guess for ruby in general there is very little net
benefit; and since they are available as gems, I suppose it makes sense
to remove them from the core distribution, and offer them as gems to 
those who need them (after all that has been one motivation for 
gemifying ruby core releases, so the proposal makes sense to me).

Feature #16484: Remove xmlrpc and net-telnet from bundled gems

----------------------------------------
I added net-telnet(2015) and xmlrpc(2016) to bundled gems. They are the old protocol in 2020.

Should we remove them at Ruby 3.0?

The users can install them from rubygems manually.
