Adjust old ruby guidelines to new ruby guidelines
Dne 27.6.2012 15:07, Till Maas napsal(a):


I noticed that the old ruby guidelines[0] and the new ruby guidelines[1]
use different macro names, for example gemname and gem_name. Since the
old guidelines need to be used for several years in EPEL, I propose to
adjust the old guidelines to the new guidlines as much as possible:

- use consistent macro names
- define macros provided in rubygems-devel in F17+ in spec files
according to the old guidelines

Are there any general objections? Otherwise I will prepare a Packaging
Draft with above changes.

Hi Till,

I am not completely sure what should be actual result of the changes, so
I am going to throw in just a few notes:

* The macro names for packaging rubygems, which are used in F17, could
be used in all Fedoras, since they were backported into the previous
* I'd love to see them also in RHEL [1], but that is not up to me
* On one hand, I'd love to see the old guidelines more aligned with the
current guidelines, but I am afraid we cannot avoid confusion, so I am
not sure that the change is worth of it.
