Hmm, isn't having the history next to the state confusing too?

Not if it's written clearly ;-)

Also, if the policy is to rename gem_1_0 packages each time they're
updated, then the history behind this is directly relevant to the
status quo.

Hmm, they are not renamed.

I think we are both getting confused by each other's vague wording ;-)

You said:
We didn't rename all gem_1_0 packages yet, but we're going there
whenever we update a package.

That's the renaming I was referring to. Maybe I misled you by using
the words 'each time'. Please can you explain exactly what you mean
by the above sentence?

You have rubygem-foo and you updated it
from 1.0 to 2.0. And if you find that something still requires 1.0.*,
you create a rubygem-foo-1_0 from the last rubygem-foo sources.

Yes, I understood that, although I still don't see a good reason for

If you find something requires 1.0.5, you create a rubygem-foo-1_0_5
and leave out the 1_0

I don't understand this - is there a typo? What does "leave out the
1_0" mean?
