It looks like in a recent RubyGems it became possible to have it install
all scripts with “j” prefixes. “jrake”, “jrails”, etc. It appears to be
broken in 1.3.1 when defaults are specified, but Eric H. has been
informed about that and it may get fixed.
The justification is similar to that for other impls…macruby installs
macrake, ruby1.9 installs rake1.9, and so on. In that light, I think I
support the “j” prefix more now than I used to. But I don’t think we can
break existing behavior.
So I guess there’s a decision here. We could basically flip a bit with
the next upgrade (RubyGems 1.3.2 in JRuby 1.1.6?) to start installing
everything with “j” prefix. Or we could force it to remain the way it
is. Or we could provide a way that users can specify which behavior they
want (suggestions welcome).
What do you all say?
