Looking at omniauth PR , I just realized that on a lot of places, we
remove references to SimpleCov, Coveralls, Bundler and probably others
to cut down the dependencies. What if we shipped in rubygems-devel some
fake libraries, which would try to load the original library, but
silently provided the miminum mock to make the test suite pass without
E.g. for rubygem-omniauth and Coveralls, we would have:
$ cat /usr/share/ruby/vendor_ruby/coveralls.rb
puts '!!! Mocking Coveralls !!!'
This is just an idea. I have not tested it. WDYT?
