Jump to: navigation, search

A irregularly updated list of pending ruby version bumps for the main tree can be found here: outdated-gems. Not all packages on that list are straightforward to bump. This list collects notes on packages that have issues and need more work to be bumped. Feel free to help tackle any of these issues!


adhearsion 2.3.5

  • Many new unpackaged dependencies: adhearsion-loquacious, celluloidtimers, countdownlatch, deep_merge, future-resource, girl_friday, has-guarded-handlers, logging, punchblock → (blather, niceogiri, ruby_ami, ruby_fs, state_machine, virtus), ruby_speech

ammeter 1.0.0

  • Tests no longer run and seem to require database connection out of the box.

barby 0.6.2

  • Not tagged upstream, gem does not contain gemspec which we need to modify.

blankslate 3.1.3

  • Fails tests

capistrano 3.2.1

  • Depends on unpackaged sshkit

capybara 2.4.2

  • Fails tests related to newly introduced code.


  • Fails tests intermittently.

dalli 2.7.2

  • Tests crash ruby 1.9 and ruby 2.0.

dep_selector 1.0.3

  • Has new dependency dep-selector-libgecode

directory_watcher 1.5.1

  • Specs seem to hang indefinitely.

em-http-request 1.1.0

  • depends on mongrel 1.2.0-pre2 which we won't add because it is a pre-release version.
  • now also depends on beta version of http_parser.rb

gettext_i18n_rails 1.0.5

  • Fails tests

gherkin 2.12.2

hike 2.1.3

  • Not tagged upstream and gem does not contain tests.

hitimes 1.2.2

  • Requires rspec 3.x

launchy 2.4.2

  • Fails tests.

mechanize 2.7.3

  • Fails tests.

mixlib-log 1.6.0

  • Not tagged upstream.

moneta 0.7.15

  • New home at
  • Many non-optional tests for things we have not packaged.
  • Pulling in all things we *do* package will add a ton of dependencies.
  • Tests depend on rspec-retry which is not packaged yet.

mongo 1.6.4

  • See bson


  • Version 2.4.11 is just restricting the dependency to bson 1.6.2 as the later versions have changed API badly (they should be called 1.7); since we're not bumping bson, this won't be a problem for the moment;
  • Version 3.0 is Ruby 1.9 -only (and JRuby in 1.9 mode) and is requiring more work.

multi_xml 0.5.5

  • Fails tests without dev-ruby/ox, but also fails when it is installed, in a different way.

net-ssh 2.9.1

  • Fails tests due to new cipher aliases.

open4 1.3.4

  • Has otherwise unspecified "test_case" requirement and it's not clear which gem provides this.

origin 2.1.1

  • Depends on unrelease rspec 3.

rgen 0.7.0

right_http_connection 1.4.0

  • Not tagged upstream.

ruby-prof 0.15.2

  • Not tagged upstream.

ruby-progressbar 1.5.1

  • Requires unreleased rspec 3

sanitize 3.0.0

  • New dependencies on crass and nokogumbo

seed_fu 2.3.1

  • Specs fails with rails 4.0 due to use of attr_protected without including the gem for it.

shoulda-context 1.2.1

  • Test suite now requires Appraisal (or at least a specific test bundle gemfile).

sprockets-rails 2.1.4

  • Fails on new manifest creation tests. Upstream travis tests pass.

stomp 1.3.3

  • Fails tests.

thor 0.18.1 (in tree)


nanoc 3.6.11

  • Has tests depending on w3c_validators and vcr (unpackaged)
