openSUSE-RU-2017:1115-1: Recommended update for ruby-common, rubygem-gem2rpm
openSUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for ruby-common,

Announcement ID: openSUSE-RU-2017:1115-1
Rating: low
References: #963710
Affected Products:
openSUSE Leap 42.2
openSUSE Leap 42.1

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.


This update for ruby-common, rubygem-gem2rpm fixes the following issues:


- Since rubygems 2.5.0 the default version in the gem bin stub changed
from '>= 0' to '>= 0.a'. This was done to allow pre-release versions.
Our patching script didn't take the '.a' into account and generated
version fields like '= 0.10.1.a' instead of the expected '= 0.10.1'.
This fix accounts for the '.a'.

Changes in rubygem-gem2rpm:

- Fix 'gem2rpm --fetch': prefer https for accessing
- Add support for Ruby 2.3.0 and 2.4.0.
- Add :post_patch hook to run commands before we rebuild the gem used by
- Add support for rubinius 2.5 and remove support for 2.2.
- No longer require the Ruby version inside the sub-package. With
BuildRequires we already make sure that the package is only built if we
find a recent enough ABI. Then the normal $interpreter(abi) requires
generated by rpm is enough.
- Move to new packaging templates by default.

This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
