Description

The y2racc and racc2y are not available upstream anymore:

https://github.com/ruby/racc/commit/2d360188e9ed474d559ad2fa9bb0636feb445ea2

I know this is development branch commit, but is it worth of shipping them in Ruby if they are going to be removed in the future?

BTW I am asking this question, because their shebang should be updated otherwise:

https://github.com/ruby/racc/tree/1-4-stable/bin still have them. We can remove them when releasing racc-2.0.

Yes, the stable racc has them, but

  1. They were never shipped in Ruby, so if they won't be shipped, nobody should miss them.
  2. It is not clear if they outputs are useful or reliable, so why to ship them if you can't tell they are useful at all.
