This bug only applies to Python 3. In Python 2, the non-ASCII bytes are sent through to the redirect target verbatim. I think this would also be the ideal way to handle the problem in 3, but percent-encoding them as proposed also seems good enough, and does not require hacking the HTTPConnection.putrequest() internals.

My patch updates Christian’s patch:
* Tested, so hopefully no typos :)
* Add test cases based on Issue 22248, as well as a URL already including a percent sign
* Process entire URL, not just the path component. A non-ASCII byte could just as easily be in the query component, for example.
* Remove redundant encoding of space character from redirect_request() method.
