open-uri: URI.open status
On the one hand, Ruby 2.5's NEWS stated:
URI.open method defined as an alias to open-uri's Kernel.open. open-uri's Kernel.open will be deprecated in future.
I believe there were good reasons for that decision.
On the other hand,
- no movements in this direction were done since 2.5
URI.openis excluded from
open-uri's docs, and the main library's documentation doesn't mention this option as preferred or even existing.
I'd like to know what the real status of this library and its migration to (safer)
Should a patch be provided to change the library's docs accordingly?
Maybe even change the code (still leaving
Kernel.open option, but just as an alias, moving the implementation away from that method)?
