I probably missed it, but according to the "20110823:" entry in
UPDATING, the ruby port was downgraded to 1.8. My first question is
why? Second, when checking on which version I have installed, this is
the output:

ruby --version
ruby 1.9.2p290 (2011-07-09 revision 32553) [amd64-freebsd8]

I therefore assume that I only have version 1.9 installed. Is that

Third, is there really any reason to go though all that bullshit to
downgrade to the previous version? I have not seen any problems
occurring on my system.
