Thank you for the feedback.

I will elaborate a little bit on the reasons and thoughts behind the pull request:
Since RFC 2640, the industry standard within FTP Clients is UTF-8 (see e.g. FileZilla here:, or WinSCP here:

Given this, I believe the majority of the users that have not investigated the code wrongly assumes UTF-8 encoding for ftplib as well (as it is now).

I am new to contributing, and not sure, how much deprecation warnings are used (I simply followed the previous encoding change on ftplib), so I will change it based on the feedback. However, shouldn't it be a FutureWarning, so it will be reported by default at initialisation?
