This was more or less about conventions for package naming in Fedora, I
Currently, every rubygem has the rubygem- prefix, e.g. for nokogiri, the
rubygem-nokogiri is the name of gem in Fedora. However, if we are going
to support more Ruby implementations, we will need to ship the versions
for MRI and JRuby and may be others. This means that (unless we decide
to keep everything in one package) we need to distinguish between
packages which are for MRI and packages for JRuby. There also might be
packages, which are useful just for JRuby.
I think, that for the platform specific bits, we should use subpackages
and somehow follow the RubyGems conventions, i.e. use -java for JRuby
packages. This is clear. Unfortunately, I am not sure how to distinguish
between C extensions for MRI and Rubinius for example (neither I really
explored, what are the possibilities, but I am afraid, that it will not
be that easy :/).
