Do we have a plan for how we want to handle ruby gems in EPEL8? ruby
is a module in RHEL8 so it seems like we would want to do that it a
modular way, which also suggests the possibility of a group effort to
produce a "EPEL8 rubygems" module. Or just dump them into the main
repo, at least for now. Or something else?
We currently have some ruby packages in epel directly, and some just in
ruby-caca gets built from libcaca - not sure how those kinds of
libraries should be handled.
Currently I'm holding off building shapelib (and thus plplot) for EPEL8
directly due to its dependency on rubygem-ronn (and its deps) until we
sort this out.
