I have pushed .spec file for Ruby 2.1.0 preview1 into private-ruby-2.1
 branch of Ruby's dist-git repository and I'll be pushing there
further changes leading into Ruby 2.1.0 package for Fedora 21. However:
* ATM, it doesn't build in Koji unfortunately, since there seems to be
some deadlock in test suite. Nevertheless, it builds (almost) fine in
mock on my computer.
* preview1 ships with preview version of RubyGems 2.2 and RDoc 4.1.0
which produces nonconforming package names such as
"rubygems-2.2.0.preview.1-0.15.preview1.fc21.noarch.rpm". Since I expect
that final version will ship non-preview versions, I don't care much
about the names.
Please test the package if you like. Any feedback (and help/patches ;)
Now I realized that I should not forgot to announce, that in RHEL 6.5
was released rubygems errata , which adds rubygems-devel subpackage
with all rubygems macros you are used to already for several releases of
Fedora. Namely, you should be able to use
Enjoy. Special thanks goes to Ken Dreyer for pushing this update forward
via RH customer support ;)
If somebody cares to backport these macros into EPEL 5, feel free to
assign yourself to .
BTW I opened FPC ticket to update the Ruby packaging guidelines.
Upstream project  and review request .
If anyone has another gem that they submitted and wants to do a review
swap, just shout out.
<random> A few of us recently added the ability to only load / activate
system installed gems to bundler_ext . This means an administrator or
developer can now use bundler_ext to pull in the yum / apt-get install
gem packages while still allowing other packages to be installed via gem
(both locally and system wide). Hopefully should make it easier to
integrate our platform and Ruby apps based on it into other gem systems.
Also <random>, be sure to checkout the gem_dependency_checker  repo
which has received quite a few updates recently including support for
updating a rpm spec to reflect the latest gem or Gemfile dependencies /
files lists. There is still work left tbd, but aim to continue
developing these tools to assist streamlining the Ruby packaging /

Let me know if i can help
There is a pretty severe bug that's probably a good candidate for backport to F20 and rawhide. The patch  reduces a potential deadlock with using Process.daemon. I can commit the patch and build a new version for the affected versions, just want to make sure people are on-board with pushing this into our packages until 2.1 final is released.
