This was just rename from rubygem-ruby-net-ldap to rubygem-net-ldap

Good deal. I later found out that upstream even has a patch in their
queue to follow this rename in their gemspec.
Otherwise, I would suggest you to read the Redmine discussion earlier
this list. I am afraid that the issues will be the same.
Yes, that thread is a good description of the same issues Gitorious
will face. I'll quote one of the parts I found most relevant

I like this scenario, but who will do that? If you volunteer, then there is
no problem :) But it means that you will become more or less Redmine
I have contributed a couple patches to upstream already, and I
understand that this is going to have to involve some developer
legwork. I figured I would try it as an experiment to see what is
I'm slowly publishing my interim work on fedorapeople.org

document FPG compromises very clearly on the wiki page, and then
slowly chip away at them. At the same time, I can be submitting the
"easier" requisite gems for review into Fedora proper. If I can keep a

I understand that Ruby's culture is all about bundling, and trying to
counteract that as a distro can be a bit like pushing a boulder
uphill. But at the same time, it's not like the question of bundling
is a new one. So I figured I might as well take a crack at it with
Gitorious and see what it's like.
One of the areas I could use the most help with from the Ruby SIG is
understanding what dependencies are a "bad idea". For example, in the
Redmine review, Jan pointed out that one of the Gem dependencies was
abandoned upstream. In my wiki page, does anyone see Gems in the
list that stand out as similarly problematic?
