I just created PR with .spec file updated to build Ruby 2.6.0.preview3:
It is very much WIP, but it builds at least. I have even not tried to
install or run the package. Pagure is so nice, that it should provide
the recent scratch builds via simple-koji-ci, so I am not going to link
So far, there are 3 things missing/ignored:
1. Bundler is completely removed. I am afraid the situation has not
improved much since last year. E.g. Molinillo, the dependency solver is
included in Ruby twice, once via RubyGems, second time via Bundler, etc.
2. IRB was gemified, therefore it should be moved into rubygem-
subpackage and the original ruby-irb should be obsoleted.
3. I am still undecided how to go forward with JIT. It requires compiler
and it has to be explicitly required, therefore we should do nothing
IMO. Later, we should probably Suggest or even Require the compiler? Not
And as always, please let me know any feedback, either here or in PR.
The release of Ruby 2.6 is coming close, so it is right about the time
to submit change proposal for Fedora 30, so we can get it in into Fedora
soon after Christmas. Therefore I put together Ruby 2.6 change proposal
. I don't think there is going to be too much controversy and
moreover I will be on vacation prior Christmas, so I moved the proposal
right to ChangeReadyForWrangler. Nevertheless, any feedback is welcome.
