@Pascal: could you run an autobuild
(http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/autobuild/) with 2 packages from a custom
You would need the following packages:
- rpm: just replace Patch2006 with 0001-Add-RubyGems-support.patch
generated by running:
git clone https://github.com/rpm-software-management/rpm.git
git format-patch 89d1dd0a7c63c7~1..89d1dd0a7c63c7
- ruby-RubyGems (apply rubygems.macros.diff to SOURCE1:rubygems.macros)
(patch is in the previous mail I CC:ed you)
Then if all packages build smoothly, we can as well switch to the upstream patch
You could restrict the autobuild to ruby* packages in order to speed it up.
