Hi Jeroen,

What you've suggested is definitely a good idea. I do agree it's important to reflect which *version*, in addtion to the name, link, etc. of a particular gem that was converted into rpm, as sometimes the latest patches and bug fixes are not included in the rpm.

Hi Everyone,

IsItFedoraRuby.com is an idea proposed in this year's Google Summer of
Code. The website will be mainly used for tracking the progress of the
conversion of each gem (similar to isitruby19.com
<http://isitruby19.com>), promoting the Fedora/Ruby integration, as
well as highlighting some success stories. Hopefully, this website
will let more people to be aware of the project, and thus more would
contribute to make it better.

I have drafted a proposal with some preliminary design of the website.
I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions from you. As a
developer, what do you want to see on this website so that it can be
most helpful to the Fedora/Ruby community?

The proposal is at:


Any feedback is much appreciated!



Hey Zuhao, thanks for the submission. the proposal looks very strong,
and the mockups look great.

I encourage anyone else who may have any additional ideas as how to
promote Ruby on Fedora and/or develop additional tooling to streamline
the Ruby to Fedora process to respond here and/or on the proposal

I've often had questions (after the usual question of what gem version is in what version of what platform (between Fedora/EPEL/RHEL)) about whether a specific version of a gem distributed with a given version of the platform had;

1) been updated with CVE patches,
2) been patched to negate bugs.

Depending on the feasibility, of course, perhaps there's opportunity to contain that information in isitfedoraruby.com as well?

Kind regards,
