Push is a bit delayed due to a missing dep which also had to be built
for epel (net-http-persistent)
That should be ready soon after which I'll push the updates.

You are speaking about EPEL, where you effectively cannot change
anything. In Fedora, i'd say we are well past behind this point.
Moreover, changing Ruby for Ruby from another source, you are asking for
troubles. This might work for Bundler, but will not work for gems with
Also, please note that the guidelines  were always very explicit
about ruby(abi) version, there was never allowed something like relaxing
the version. You were always supposed to R: ruby(abi) = 1.8.
But may be I just don't cope your idea :)
Hrm, suppose the crux of the suggestion was to change the current
guidelines to permit relaxing the ruby abi in these types of
environments (eg EPEL6, etc). The idea being to allow for a bit more
flexibility to be able to use updated components in these legacy
environments (if desired, the old being completely compatible).
Not a high priority, things should work as is, albeit perhaps w/ a few
extra packages installed, so no worries either way.
