I'm no expert here but I'd like to add my two cents.
is a project started last summer. It is intended to give an
overview of the progress of gem->rpm conversions on fedora.
We used to have a section called Most Wanted Gems whose purpose is exactly to provide a
way for people to vote for gems they want, but haven't been converted into rpms yet.
Hopefully with more votes, developers will pay more attention to those highly wanted
(Well, at least this is what we've planned initially.)
Although the website is still pretty much in progress, and unfortunately it only tracks
gems with rpms currently (instead of the whole bunch from rubygems.org
), maybe we will
roll out the feature soon if people do find that useful.

This will get probably the same attention as the post on Devise forum.

This is definitely option.
