Thanks for the update.

Because I have the impression that the Debian Med team has no Ruby
experts on board it might be reasonable if the Ruby team throws in
technical experience. As a Debian Pure Blend we just observe it in
our tasks and bugs pages (the fact that no "new version available
bug is filed shows that we need to implement according DEHS pages
Just keep us informed if a Ruby packager is taking over the job or
whether we should try to see what we might be able to do.
Thanks for the update on this
