Subject: New Pod::Simple warning: Non-ASCII character seen before =encoding
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 436b
Sample fail report: http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/22300465 Pod::Simple >= 3.22 and Test::Pod are required to reproduce. Please consider making pod tests author tests, they make user installs fail unnecessarily. Or it is always the other option to add an encoding declaration to the POD or to resort to ASCII only or so. Thanks && Regards, (Disclaimer: this was discovered by statistical analysis, I'm not speaking as a user)

Both of these should be done. It is a genuine error that there is no =encoding declaration in the pod (and anyone viewing the pod will get a warning about the faulty encoding), but the pod tests should also only be run for the author, not for normal user installs.

Fails also with 2.4.
