Plan

Jeroen posted a draft plan. There are two big buckets of items:

  • Get Ruby 1.9 built/packaged, as well as rebuilding a sufficient number of ruby packages
  • Decide whether supporting both 1.9 and 1.8 is necessary and worthwhile

State

Jeroen has put up a number of things:

Git repo with specfiles: git://fedorapeople.org/home/fedora/kanarip/public_git/ruby-specs.git
Git repo for Ruby itself: git://fedorapeople.org/home/fedora/kanarip/public_git/ruby.git
Yum repos with test builds for Ruby 1.9 and a mirror

Tasks

Interpreter

  • Get Ruby 1.9.x built
  • Settle on a load path
  • Rebuild all rubygem-* and ruby-* packages against 1.9 and file bugs for failures

Ruby packaging

  • Settle on a ruby.macros for RPM
  • Draft changes to the packaging guidelines
