Getting Rails 3 into Debian wheezy - coordination page

DISCLAIMER: we don't know if it will be possible to get Rails 3 on wheezy. Nevertheless, this page is being used to coordinate our attempt. -- AntonioTerceiro

TODO list

  • metapackages: ruby-rails-3.2 + rails3
    • /!\ uploaded, waiting for NEW processing.

  • Make Debian packages recognizable by Rubygems - this is necessary because of the way Rails uses bundler to declare application dependencies and load them at the right time. It will require overriding the Rubygems path and modifying dh_ruby to install a .gemspec file. WIP - terceiro

    • change gem2deb to install gemspec

    • upload this new gem2deb

    • /!\ upload rubygems-integration waiting in NEW

      • upload version 1.1 after 1.0 passes NEW !!!
    • {*} mass upload of all packages depending on gem2deb

      • see this thread

      • Look out for relevant exceptions:
        • none of more common the database drivers (ruby-sqlite3, ruby-mysql, ruby-pg) have gemspecs!
        • :o ruby-sprockets is 2.4.x, while the actionpack gemspec requires 2.1.x !!!!

  • review railties after Debian packages are recognizable by Rubygems
  • Package missing dependencies:
    • /!\ jquery-rails (2.0.2) waiting in NEW

    • rdoc not actually needed, provided by ruby

    • coffee-script-source WIP - terceiro

    • execjs WIP - terceiro

      • depends on a Javascript runtime. Node.js might not get into Wheezy, but maybe we can get execjs to work fine under gjs.
      • execjs also supports spidermonkey, but the spidermonkey adapter is marked as deprecated (why is that?)
    • coffee-script WIP - terceiro

      • must be patched to use the existing coffeescript from libjs-coffeescript)
    • coffee-rails WIP - terceiro

    • sass-rails WIP - gramos

    • uglifier WIP - terceiro

  • bugs
    • master bug preventing the entire rails 3 stack from entering testing: 674518

    • bug links here
