May be you should provide more details for what reason you cannot use
Ruby 1.9.3 to help me understand. And believe me, we went through more
than 320 packages in Fedora to make sure they are at least buildable
with Ruby 1.9.3, if they had properly executed test suited, there is
also high chance that these packages will work. There is less then 15
packages from the total amount which are still troubling us but these
packages are typically obsolete anyway (take sdljava as an example).
