Line 6: Line 7:
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. Most discussions happen on the [[http://lists.debian.org/debian-ruby/ debian-ruby@ mailing list]]. Discussions specific to pkg-ruby-extras also happen on the [[http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers@ list]]. You should be subscribed to both if you want to follow Ruby in Debian.
Line 8: Line 9:
The teams also maintains the ''ruby-pkg-tools'' package, a set of useful tools for anyone who wishes to make debian packages from Ruby libraries of programs. We also use IRC (#debian-ruby on irc.debian.org) quite a lot.

The Debian/Ruby Teams

The Debian/Ruby teams maintain the Ruby interpreters, libraries and applications. There are actually two different Ruby teams in Debian:

  • the pkg-ruby team maintains the interpreter
  • the pkg-ruby-extras team maintains libraries and applications

Most discussions happen on the http://lists.debian.org/debian-ruby/ debian-ruby@ mailing list. Discussions specific to pkg-ruby-extras also happen on the http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers pkg-ruby-extras-maintainers@ list. You should be subscribed to both if you want to follow Ruby in Debian.

We also use IRC (#debian-ruby on irc.debian.org) quite a lot.

pkg-ruby

How you can help:

  • {*} Subscribe to the pkg-ruby packages (ruby1.8, ruby1.9.1, ruby-defaults) on the Packages Tracking System, and then contribute to the bug mail you get.
