Changelog: http://xls01.freecult.org/pkg/?p=pkg.git;a=log;h=refs/heads/rails23

Description: rubygem-activerecord2.3 is a dependency of rails 2.3. (another dependency is rubygem-rdoc, which was built for Fedora 16 by mmorsi. See http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=254306 )

Although rails 3 was released, and Fedora 15 has moved to rails 3, there are still rails projects working with rails 2.3 series. Rails 3 is not backwards compatible and some key features are not yet working in rails 3. One notable project still on rails 2.3 is the issue tracker redmine: http://www.redmine.org.

Since rails 2 and rails 3 are perfectly parallel installable, I would like to maintain rails 2.3 series in Fedora until it really becomes obsolete. I have built these rails 2.3.12 packages starting from the rails 2.3.8 rpms already in Fedora 14.

This is my first time packaging for Fedora and I am welcoming feedback. Thank you for your time.

This package will probably not work on F16 and F17. It requires rubygem-sqlite3-ruby which was renamed to rubygem-sqlite3. I will upload updated srpms shortly.

Comment 3 Emanuel Rietveld 2012-05-07 15:17:43 UTC
With the move to ruby 1.9, making rails 2.3 compatible has become much more difficult in recent Fedora releases. Additionally, several projects requiring rails 2.3 previously now support rails 3, including redmine. I am abandoning this effort.
