- Well, actually this naming rule is for "ruby-foo", not "rubygem-bar".
  For rubygem-based packages, we just say:
  "Packages that contain Ruby Gems must be called 
   rubygem-%{gemname} where gemname is the name from the Gem's 

  The rationale behind removing additional "ruby" string for "ruby-foo-ruby"
  package (I believe) is that usually the module in "ruby-foo-ruby" is 
  imported with "require 'foo'", not "require 'foo-ruby'",

  For rubygem based packages, this is different, because the module name
  is actually "ruby-bar" or "bar-ruby", as used in
  - $ gem contents baz
    or $ ruby -rubygems -e 'gem "baz"'.

- I don't think adding executable permission does not make sense
  - because these scripts are not meant for being executed directly
    (Usually I would remove shebangs for this case, however with this
     $ rake test actually fails)
  - and actually one script has (intentionally) wrong shebang.

- From rpmlint source codes, this error is raised up because 
  -doc subpackage has the dependency for a package the name of
  which ends with "debug"
  ("devel_regex" in /usr/share/rpmlint/FilesCheck.py)
