The main question in Ruby packaging is how to deal with different versions: should they be packaged up as different packages or just updated in a single line of packages?
The following strategy has been chosen for Ruby and GEM packaging:
- Versions of Ruby itself are packaged in separate packages like
- We will provide a generic CSWruby package that depends on the currently preferred ruby version (eg: CSWruby1-8) for ease of installation by users.
- Ruby GEMS are packages dependent on the Ruby version and each version of a GEM will be packaged up as separate package like
- The current rbgems category now builds packages with the new naming standard by default
