+1 for Rails 3 on EPEL

Rails community tends to catch up with new Rails versions pretty quickly
and quite often even run on Edge. So I think it's quite logical to assume
that Rails 3 would catch up soon. I'm pretty sure Rails 3 will come to pass
before 7 years, but for the same reason 2.3.x could be outdated long long
before that. So 3.x, IMO.

It'd be nice if Fedora 15 also decides on Rails 3 with Ruby 1.9.2 (and also
have a RVM setup for those who want to use).
