I'm no expert here but I'd like to add my two cents.

http://isitfedoraruby.com is a project started last summer. It is intended to give an overview of the progress of gem->rpm conversions on fedora.

We used to have a section called Most Wanted Gems whose purpose is exactly to provide a way for people to vote for gems they want, but haven't been converted into rpms yet. Hopefully with more votes, developers will pay more attention to those highly wanted gems.

(Well, at least this is what we've planned initially.)

Although the website is still pretty much in progress, and unfortunately it only tracks gems with rpms currently (instead of the whole bunch from rubygems.org), maybe we will roll out the feature soon if people do find that useful.

A while ago I posted a note on the Devise forum asking if anyone was
going to build an RPM for Fedora but didn't get any responses at all -
no-one even viewed the post! What happens with Gems in this
category? Am I supposed to do anything? Add a request somewhere?

This will get probably the same attention as the post on Devise forum.

Use the Gem instead of an RPM while I wait for someone to do the work
for creating the RPM?

This is definitely option.

Should I bite the bullet and see how to produce the RPM myself?

And this is the best possibility. You can start here [1] and I'll be
happy to sponsor you.
