while debugging an issue earlier this week i stumbled upon
"gem install --ignore-dependencies"
if we would use that. we could drop almost all buildrequires from our
rubygem-* packages. this would allow us rebuilding projects like d:l:r:e
much faster. also changes to some lower level gems would not rebuild all
the packages on top.
though it comes at the price with more work for our packagers. they
would need to check if any of the required gems are used at build time.
as gem doesnt differ between install time and runtime dependencies (only
development time dependencies are split out so far), we might have to
find that out manually.
question is ... do we want to pay that price?
