-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Ruby 1.9.x has been the recommended version of Ruby from the official
Ruby web site www.ruby-lang.org since at least April 2009. Many other
systems are still using Ruby 1.8.x, but I get the impression that many
people are building their own to use 1.9.
I've been doing a good bit of work to make many ports compatible with
Ruby 1.9. There are still a good number that aren't. There have been
changes to portupgrade-devel to make it compatible with Ruby 1.9 and
those should appear in portupgrade soon. There are others that still
need work, I can provide a list of that's desired.
I have a patch here:
which updates Ruby 1.9 and makes it the default.
I would like to get feedback on peoples opinions of moving to Ruby 1.9.
Should we go ahead and change? Or should we wait for others? If we want
to do it before 9.0, we should do it soon.
