rubygem-based deplate package

installing Deplate in the A2E stack

The combination of RPM with Rubygem is not an ideal solution. We should find a way of building and patching our Deplate package with the means of RPM only.

1 Situation

We have packaged the module as compressed tar, source rpm and object rpm package, based on rubygem-deplate.spec, for the a2e opensuse public repository.

We are not yet able to meaningfully patch ruby gems. To do this we have to dig deeply into the ruby gem building process. It might be cleaner to build RPM packages on the basis of tarballs, but Opensuse also uses CPAN packages for building Perl RPMs.

  • 2008-11-23 version upgrade from 0.8.1 to 0.8.4 repeated for old opensuse distribution a2e_suse10_3
  • 2008-11-19 version upgrade from 0.8.1 to 0.8.4 initiated
  • dat: 2008-06-19; prs: phm: apache created this directory

In 0.8.1, the fmt/latex.rb had to be patched to fix the Quote environment as encouraged by the author. For this and other purposes we need to take the tar package rather than the gem as a basis of our package building efforts.
