Bug #15376

Default gems: how will it work exactly?

Added by marcandre (Marc-Andre Lafortune) over 1 year ago. Updated over 1 year ago.

Target version:


Some standard libraries will be gemified in Ruby 2.6+.

1) I believe we need to provide documentation for this. The NEWS file doesn't have much at all. The respective READMEs also have no relevant information and are misleading (see I'll be glad to write an initial draft if need be, with the answers to the following questions...

2) Can we play with this right now? Maybe publishing prelease versions of these libraries?

3) Has this been tested with Gemfile and gemspec, i.e. it will be possible to add a specification for one of these?

4) What is supposed to happen if one does gem install ostruct in Ruby 2.5 (with current bundler, and with future bundler)?

5) Will it be possible to use these in Gemfiles even with older Ruby (but recent bundler), so one could say gem 'ostruct' in a Gemfile and run bundle install in Ruby 2.5 without things exploding?

6) Depending on 4/5, shouldn't we specify a required_rubygems_version and/or required_ruby_version in the gemspecs?
