Ruby / ElasticSearch hacker Infra is currently running at least two major services using Ruby stack with ElasticSearch: archives.g.o (with sinatra) and packages.g.o (with rails). However, we no longer have any members fluent with either of that, and the services need proper maintenance including:
  • Packaging the missing dependencies for Gentoo and switching away from bundler.
  • Upgrading from ES-1 to ES-5.
  • Maintaining the deployments further, fixing bugs and so on.
Either good knowledge of or willingness to learn (without much help on our end):
  • Ruby packaging in Gentoo (ruby-fakegem.eclass in particular).
  • ElasticSearch maintenance and upgrades.
  • Basic Ruby with the necessary libraries (good enough to be able to do at least minor fixes to existing code).
