I've now got a working scratch-build for EPEL6, and barring any objections, I'll be pushing this to EPEL 6 as an update in about 24 hours.

Adding jrusnack to CC, and he was helping me with this earlier today

Comment 11 Ján Rusnačko 2015-04-23 14:56:01 UTC
When update is pushed bz#731451 should be closed, too.

Comment 12 Ján Rusnačko 2015-04-23 15:14:37 UTC
Also I realized only later (sorry), but this is most probably not critical for el6. This critical part was because this allowed unauthenticated RCE in Rails. However, Rails stack is not in EPEL 6, just activesupport part of it.
