I say put them in the main EPEL 8, without modules.
They get built against the default RHEL8 ruby module.
When RHEL8 get's another ruby module, then we can create and EPEL8
rubygem module that works for that RHEL8 module.
But have all the rubygems in non-module EPEL8, be built against the
default RHEL8 ruby module.
p.s. The rubygems that are currently in -playground, are from me, for
KDE. I'm currently in the process of putting them in regular EPEL8.
I'm letting the regular maintainer build them if they wish, or if they
don't want (such as the ones Vic owns) I'm maintaining them for EPEL8.
