Since I wrote a message to the Ruby SIG list, I suppose it is the time
for self introduction. You can refer to my introduction on the devel
list  for the basics. Regarding Ruby, I do not have any specific
relationship with the language. I just happen to be a Jekyll user and
ended up adopting the rubygem-jekyll package  together with related
plugins and some dependencies. Since Jekyll is written in Ruby, I
thought I should subscribe to this list, in order to track discussion
possibly relevant for those packages.
Regarding maintaining Ruby packages, I notice that some of the packages
I maintain have the group @ruby-packagers-sig as co-maintainers, but not
all. What is the set of packages this group wants to have access to? I
could all them to all my packages, if the answer is "all Ruby packages".
Vit and Others,
I was able to look at Koschei and get a sense of how it works by poking
around and reading some documentation. I was not, however, able to
figure out how to update packages to their latest versions? Is there a
git I need to clone ( I found src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/ but no way to
Sorry for all the questions, and thanks for your time,

Hello, ruby-sig folks:
After a long delay, I've finally updated net-http-persistent to 4.0.1
on rawhide/f34, and also I've modified packages which directly depend on
- rubygem-mechanize : actually not modified
code itself already supports net-http-persistent >= 3, modified gemspec
also fixed FTBFS, due to missing BR for webrick (for ruby 3.0 change)
applied upstream patch to support change on net-http-persistent >= 3
for error status when net connection fails
I think I've done my best, however please try and check the above changes,

Taken these (rubygem-kramdown depends on 4 of these, rubygem-nokogiri depends on
rubygem-ruby-progressbar). The packages I am maintaining is getting broader...

Actually rubygem-stringex test failure is not due to ruby 3.0, but change in
RoR 6.1.x suite and I've fixed this. (I've not checked jekyll or so).

Thank you for maintaining these packages till now.
My name is Addison Martin! I am a 23 year old Ruby programmer living in
the United States. I would like to give back to my community and
contribute to open source, also I'd love to learn more about the Fedora
I have only contributed to an open source project once, so I am new. I
would love for some help with where to get started contributing to Ruby
