yesterday we migrated devel:languages:ruby:backports [1] and
devel:languages:ruby [2] to the new ruby packaging scheme. my personal test
projects [3] show, that this gives us a working base. So now it is the
time to fix all the old cruft we have in d:l:r:e. Some packages havent
been touched since 5+years and still have the packaging schema from back


finally I've found the time to spend on this...

I've fixed about 300 of them that were straightforward.

There are a hundred still to fix which are:

- one needs a license fix, which I'll fix it with the gem2rpm.yml file and send a PR upstream
- several need to have build requirements manually set, which are native gems. There is some metadata on the gem file that could be used for that. I'll check what can be done.
- several have a name ending with the version, like actionpack_3_2. This needs the name in the resulting spec to be fixed. I'll see if we can do it with the gem2rpm.yml file.
- several have a custom code for setting up update-alternatives on the binaries. I'll see what can be done with the gem2rpm
- at least one has a custom patch on the resulting gem. I'll see if I can fix it with the gem2rpm and send a PR upstream.

I'll be doing that this week so I'll get back to you before the end of the week hopefully with all that fixed.
