either that or just let gem do its own management, since it can keep up
with versions/updates and dependency resolution for gems. i understand
wanting to see a 'rails' or 'mongrel' package specifically, and i know
other distributions have begun to package them like that, but you start
running into questions like should package ActiveRecord, etc. in with the
rails package, or just have many individual packages, with detailed
this kindof defeats the purpose of rubygems, especially on slackware's
package management.
