Congratulation INADA-san! I'm impressed by your tenacity :-)
Last months, I followed your different propositions on discuss.python.org to use UTF-8 by default in Python. It's good to see the first non-controversial part being accepted! I hope that this PEP will help to move towards a world where we don't guess encodings anymore, but make them very explicit!
Once the whole stdlib and most of top PyPI projects will be fixed to no longer emit EncodingWarning, I will become safer to opt-in for UTF-8 by default by enabling the Python UTF-8 Mode! https://docs.python.org/dev/library/os.html#python-utf-8-mode
One day, we will silently switch Python to UTF-8 by default, and nobody will notice! ;-)

Thank you for submitting PEP 597 (Add optional EncodingWarning). The Steering Council is happy with the PEP, and hereby accepts it. The SC is of the opinion that we should move towards making UTF-8 the default encoding, and this PEP will make it easier to do so, and mitigate some of the confusion around the default encoding in the meantime.
That being said, the SC would like to invite you and others with interest to work on a PEP for a long term plan to, in fact, change the default encoding to UTF-8. We don't want to make irrevocable decisions until we have a clear, viable plan with a good upgrade path and with community support, but we do believe we need to make that decision sooner rather than later.
With thanks from the whole Python Steering Council, Thomas. -- Thomas Wouters email@example.com
