That would be very difficult since I know absolutely nothing about ruby. My

Why does this have no chance of being included in a RedHat distribution? Is it
a licensing issue or something else?
I said Fedora distribution and EPEL add-on repository, and I did not say Red
Hat distribution. These are completely different. The Fedora Project will not
accept it as part of it's Fedora distribution or EPEL add-on repository, and
Red Hat can do as it wishes -however it is still very much unlikely they'll
ship it as it is.
As to the reason this package is not / can not / will not be included; Please
read the comments in this bug/review request. Long story short, Passenger ships
a forked version of the C++ Boost libraries -and lags behind a dozen versions
