Wow, this is amazing how this has degenerated. Ruby has to be one of the only
popular languages without a standard apache module. Do the Phusion people not
see the value in getting their software packaged into a major distribution like
RedHat? And getting it into Fedora would be the first step towards that
happening. Do they not realize the wide acceptance and popularity they would
get (at least in the US and maybe worldwide) by being bundled with a large
vendor's OS out of the box? Instead they want their customers to jump through
hoops to install their software.
Why do software tools have to reinvent packaging systems outside of the OS
package management system anyway, like Ruby's Gems, Perl's CPAN &
Eggs. From a sysadmin perspective, this is horrible and should be avoided at
Anyway, since my main objective was to install a scalable puppet server, and
since puppet recently released 2.6.1 which supports JRuby, I guess I will now
be forced to look into that as an alternative, with tomcat.
I'm sorry I reopened this can of worms.
