Description of problem:
ruby-devel only requires ruby-libs and neither ruby-devel nor
ruby-libs require ruby itself, but without ruby, ruby-libs and
ruby-devel are useless.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ruby-devel and ruby-libs and see that they don't require
No, as the package description says, ruby-devel is to developt the
extension library. and for that, ruby interpreter itself (which ruby
package contains) isn't required for that. and though eruby requires
ruby-libs, ruby interpreter itself isn't also required to get working
for eruby. that's why ruby-devel and ruby-libs didn't requires ruby.
so this is not a bug.
