Hello everybody,

I'd like to bring to your attention that there was proposed by Ruby SIG 
meeting as part of FUDCon Milan [1]. I would like to take this meeting 
as change to discuss Ruby future in Fedora. Here are few point I'd like 
to discuss:

* Ruby 1.9.3 for F17. I have already pre-prepared feature page [2] for 
this and I am working towards packaging Ruby 1.9.3. However, there are 
several issues including
    - How to correctly name and version subpackages such as RubyGems,  
RDoc, Rake, IRB
    - How to maintain updates of them late.
    - Directory structure.

* Support of gems for MRI and JRuby.
    - Is it possible to share RubyGems?
    - Is it possible to share gems?

* Support of multiple versions of gems on single installation, e.g. 
Rails 2 vs Rails 3.

* Refresh of Ruby Packaging Guidelines
    - They do not always follow best practices
    - They will need to be updated because of Ruby 1.9.3

* gem2rpm future and possible extensions

This is list is not exhaustive, so please feel free to add few more 
points, which you think might be interesting to discuss.
