I don't know of anyone who has an update plan for this. If you would
like to submit a patch, it would help things along. If you take a look
at the porters handbook:
it has detailed instructions on how to do this. If you would like help,
I'd be happy to assist.
Looking at the update briefly, it seems that some of it's dependencies
already have ports, but some do not. We would need a port of the
domain_name and ntlm-http gems.
The module would also need to be updated to work with the 1.2 version of
the net-http-digest_auth gem, currently it only supports 1.1.x. Someone
would need to contact the upstream author(s) about this.
