We should probably submit Rails 3.1 as a feature for F16. Any volunteer? 
I am volunteering to do the packaging as soon as the stable version gets 

Hrm the stable rails 3.1 version is expected to be released in a little over a week unless there are any setbacks [1]

Here's the thing, I feel that most upstream communities are slowly pushing towards migrating from Rails 2.3.x to 3.0.x. I have heard almost nothing about Rails 3.1.x in production as of now (as is expected since it hasn't been released).

From my POV, if they did not migrated to Rails 3 yet, then holding back with upgrade to Rails 3.1 doesn't have sense. Also, I believe that you should be able to install the F15 Rails on F16 if you like the older version. If updating, why not the bleeding edge? Updating to 3.0.x version doesn't bring anything new.


Hrm good point, not sure if people will update to 3.0 or 3.1. All the upstream hubbub has been about migrating to rails 3.0. If we see more adoption of 3.1 instead going here on forward then yes I fully support moving to 3.1 at a future Fedora version.

We can't satisfy everyone (afterall thats what gem and rvm is for) but I think we maximize our chances of making Fedora a popular platform for Ruby developers  if we can stay in sync w/ the perceived most common use case / supported stack in the Ruby / Rails community.

In any case I agree it wouldn't hurt to start prepping the rpms, then we can make the decision on which Fedora version to push those into when we have more information.
