Line 5: Line 5:
The Debian/Ruby Extras team maintains libraries and applications written in and for the Ruby language. The Ruby interpreter itself is not a responsibility of the team, though we strive to maximize our cooperation with the Ruby maintainers. The '''Debian Ruby team''' maintains Ruby software in Debian. This includes the interpreters, libraries and applications.
