What do you mean by EOL date (presumably End Of Line, but what do you
mean by that)?

The majority of these aren’t commercially supported gems - They’ll be
maintained until the current maintainers run out of time, enthusiasm or
interest and no-one from the community takes up the baton. There isn’t
an
official end of life date. Sometimes a new project comes along with a
lot
more momentum than an existing one and libraries fade out of usage, for
example I’d say that capybara is seeing a lot attention than webrat and
devise is getting more usage than authlogic. A lot of the gems you list
are
quite old - rspec 1.x has been obsolete for quite a while for example.

End Of Life - usually defined when there is no more support.

As Fred has pointed out, that concept is not relevant to most gems, as
there is no “official” support for them. That is why I asked for
clarification as to what exactly the OP was asking about.
