[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi everyone,

Is there still a point to keeping the rdoc package around? It looks like
it depends on Ruby 1.8, so it's equivalent to the rdoc1.8 package. If
this is the case, I would suggest just removing rdoc and maybe renaming
rdoc1.8 to rdoc.

Well as I exspect ri to drag ri1.8 along, and ruby ruby1.8 because it's
just the current version, I was already confused that there was not
an rdoc virtual package.

So I would suggest to make this the same as all other ruby related
binary packages. A rdoc dummy package depending on rdoc1.8.
I believe this isn't mentioned in the Ruby Policy[1] though, only for
modules[2].

It looks like this is accomplished in version 1.8.1-7 of ruby-defaults, 
which entered unstable on May, 22. In the meantime, that version of 
ruby-defaults has gone into testing, therefore I'm closing this bug.

If anybody feels this is inappropriate, please do not hesitate to reopen it 
again.

Cheers,
