All righty the results are in.

ok, i just got hit by this one:

make all gems/libs run in ruby1.9

Any in particular (besides ruby-debug) that aren’t compat but we wish
they were? It seems to me like porting to 1.9 isn’t too difficult.

ruby-debug would be really nice. I’d like webby too, but Tim P. is
apparently held up by some other gem - I think it’s hpricot, but I’m not
sure,

I believe eventmachine 0.12.8 works just fine under 1.9 - I know it
works
for the limited amount I use it

3 pg

The version from here http://github.com/dseverin/pg/tree/master - works
for
me just fine under 1.9

Appears the only ones not compat are ruby-serialport [unfortunately I’m
not sure if I have a serial device to test it with] and webby appears
also to install and work if you patch it [1]. hpricot does appear to
compile and work on 1.9.
For ruby-debug the only current option (at least we have options) is the
built in debugger [2] or unroller [3].

Not sure if there’s much to do here. Move along now.

All righty got ruby-snarl updated :slight_smile:

Can’t seem to push it to gemcutter as of yet, so here it is.

Enjoy.

just my current wish:
1 ruby-serialport

Appears it’s compatible for linux:

  1. Documentation: hack on rdoc with a few things – some bugs, update
    the hanna template so that it looks prettier, create a live method
    introspection gem, add remote ri gem, etc.

At the moment there is still no (rdoc) documentation for Ruby 1.9.1
available anywhere, so it would be great if that could be improved.

http://rubydoc.ruby-forum.com/doc/ruby-1.9.1-p129/

Are there any other requests for ruby documentation that people out
there still feel is lacking, anywhere?

I was wondering on any feedback on which of the following pet projects
would be most helpful to the community.

  1. One thing I would really, really like would be support for proxies
    which require authentication, and more specifically the Microsoft ISA
    Firewall. I’d like to be able to push to gemcutter from behind that
    firewall, for instance, or install gems without resorting to NTLM APS

Barring that, Track down more bugs in the core!

And thanks for everything you’ve done so far.

Any other burning requests for things in Ruby, for me to work on?

Well, I can’t really +1 my previous request for the proxy authentication
thing, so I’m going to +1 the documentation…
Like, for instance, :

I did notice

But since I don’t have one to test with…
