Hi guys,

For a long time, I thought that it would be interesting to have .gem
expansion support in %setup macro. This would simply our .spec files a
bit. Finally, I gave a go to this idea and proposed this to RPM upstream
[1]. Please let me know (preferably via the PR) if you can foresee any
issues with this approach.

Hi Vit,
I think this is a great idea.  Since the instructions for prep of rubygems have settled down for a couple years I think now is the time to do it.

I do have one question.
If I am reading the code right you have the equivalent of
{gem unpack} SOURCE0 && gem spec SOURCE0 --ruby > {gem_name}.gemspec

Why aren't you using the -l in the gem spec portion?
Shouldn't it be

{gem unpack} SOURCE0 && gem spec SOURCE0 -l --ruby > {gem_name}.gemspec
