I have contributed a couple patches to upstream already, and I
understand that this is going to have to involve some developer
legwork. I figured I would try it as an experiment to see what is
That is the word of man ;) Good to hear that.
I'm slowly publishing my interim work on fedorapeople.org
. I intend to
document FPG compromises very clearly on the wiki page, and then
slowly chip away at them. At the same time, I can be submitting the
"easier" requisite gems for review into Fedora proper. If I can keep a
running dashboard of the issues, hopefully it will not be
I understand that Ruby's culture is all about bundling, and trying to
counteract that as a distro can be a bit like pushing a boulder
uphill. But at the same time, it's not like the question of bundling
is a new one. So I figured I might as well take a crack at it with
Gitorious and see what it's like.
One of the areas I could use the most help with from the Ruby SIG is
understanding what dependencies are a "bad idea". For example, in the
Redmine review, Jan pointed out that one of the Gem dependencies was
abandoned upstream. In my wiki page, does anyone see Gems in the
list that stand out as similarly problematic?
On first look, I'm curious about hoe, echoe, gemcutter, rubyforge. They
seems to be development or better to say deployment dependencies. So I
believe it should be possible to get rid of them. They are probably used
in some Rakefile for some management tasks.
