You probably noticed, that there is ongoing build of all Python packages
in Copr  and today, I was approached by Miroslav Suchý, that he'd
like to do the same for rubygems. And this in turn triggered these
1) Would you be interested to create ruby-sig group in FAS? We could
make the group owner of some packages and in turn, the members of the
group could maintain the packages, without explicitly asking for some ACLs.
2) For the Copr rebuild of rubygems, there needs to be some FAS group
again. Python guys are asking for "pypi-builds-sig" group , hence
following their lead, I'd like to ask for "rubygems-builds-sig" group
(note that although I don't like the '-sig' suffix in this case, it is
mandated by the infrastructure ticket template).
So what are your thoughts?
Looking at the list of broken dependencies, it seems that we have some
work to do. IOW there are quite some packages, which have hard
dependency on older JSON.
Although there are several things to note at this place:
1. DNF/RPM might be able to install the packages due to this  bug
2. RubyGems won't be able to load such dependencies, on the other hand,
since JSON is default gem and it is always available in the $LOAD_PATH,
RubyGems might not be involved at all.
We should fix it anyway ...

So finally time for some fun. Since the Ruby 2.4 change proposal  was
accepted, I asked release engineering for sidetag  to start with
rebuild. This sidetag was granted and I was able to build there Ruby
itself as well as several of my packages. Now is time for your help as well.
What does it means? This is the list of packages which very likely needs
to be rebuild:
$ dnf repoquery --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rawhide
--enablerepo=rawhide-source --arch=src --whatrequires 'ruby-devel' |
sort | uniq
You can take the package and just fire rebuild, but please, you should
be using f26-ruby24 build target , i.e. the build command should look
$ fedpkg build --target f26-ruby24
If you forget to specify the target, you'll do build against Ruby 2.3,
which is not what you want.
If you don't make it soon enough, I'll very likely rebuild your package
sooner or later. I'll be using fermig  to do that as I did during
previous rebuilds. If you don't like me to touch you package for
whatever reason, please let me know (Mamoru, I suppose you are going to
rebuild your packages yourself, right?).
You can follow the progress at:
$ koji list-tagged f26-ruby24
As always, any help/testing/feedback is welcome.

Hello Ruby Sig folks
Right now I am trying to fix the issues of RSpec and Cucumber Fedora packages for Ruby 2.4 compatibility.
Because I want to create Red Hat Software Collections based on that.
Related packages needed by RSpec and Cucumber are as follows.
Several packages got error on Koschei . and several packages passed, but several pakcages do not have valid tests on %check section.
So, I am trying to fix that. and am going to send patch to the package owner.
But if you are the package owner, and you have a time to fix that, I am also happy for you to fix it.

I put together change proposal for Ruby 2.4 in Fedora 26 . Any
feedback is welcome. If no feedback, I'll propose this change to package
wrangler in a week or so ...
Time is running past and it is almost 6 months of development of Ruby
2.4. So I started to prepare some test build again. I am pushing all the
changes into private-ruby-2.4 branch of dist-git if you are interested
and here is the build of r55184:
One notable change is that XMLRPC library was extracted into separate
gem, so rubygem-xmlrpc is now available as Ruby subpackage.
Please give it a try and let me know if anything goes wrong.
