The easiest solution is to just renaming the current minitest rpm as
(i.e. submitting a new review request), or instead introducing rubygem-minitest5 and at
time renaming rubygem-minitest5 to rubygem-minitest, as we have once already done for
rspec version 1 vs 2, or I am currently doing for rubygem-goocanvas (version 2,
on gtk3) vs rubygem-goocanvas1 (depending on gtk2). As basically rubygems supports
installation of multiple versions of gems with the same name, this should be easily
done (basically just changing srpm name should be enough).
This seems like a safe path that we also shortly discussed with Vit. We could probably
it for some packages, although I would probably like try to propose minitest 5 change to
upstream which could speed up the adoption.
Note that some packages (I maintain) already requires minitest 5 for
currently I have to revert changes), e.g.
True, I think I was also already reverting something.
