It seems the server-side js dependency is pulled in via coffeescript,
an alternative solution would be to remove that dependency for the
being (since nodejs and execjs haven't made it into Fedora yet).
Yes, that is an alternative. I would however prefer doing them first, so that we don't
have to modify the rails default application template (a modification, that we would throw

Could we remove these from the default Gemfile? This way the new
project creation would be a minimal install, and developers could
it from there.
Which Fedora version are you targeting the updated Rails rpms?
I would prefer leaving this as close to the upstream as possible. So don't remove
anything, but make rails srpm depend on all the stuff (this means coffe-rails,
jquery-rails, sass-rails, uglifier and js). Here are the SRPMS for the packages that are
not in Fedora nor under review yet . (They are not fine-tuned, so please be tolerant ;)
