[ANN] Debian ruby-full package - a full installation of Ruby

    Hello Debian Ruby users,

    I have seen many complaints on this list that the debian ruby packages are split into several small
    components, which makes it a pain to get a 'genuine' ruby install. Though this is not about to change
    (for many reasons, all too long to fit here), I've uploaded to the unstable distribution a dependency
    package, ruby-full, that should pull in all the required dependencies to get a decent Ruby experience.
    The only exception is the Ruby/Tcl bindings, which are only recommended.

    If any debian users doesn't seem to be able to use some of ruby's parts, please install ruby-full.
    And then, if that doesn't work yet, you can ask your question here.

    Enjoy,

    Vince

    Does ruby-elisp really need to be included in this? It's not really a
    library needed to run ruby programs built on other platforms with the
    whole standard library in mind the same way the other dependencies are.
