I no longer intend to close this ancient ITP myself; I live more than
happy with the Z shell and honestly haven’t felt an urge to play with
rush for ages.  If someone else wants finds this worthwhile: For the
time being, you can find some long-abandoned packaging stuff on
svn://svn.debian.org/pkg-ruby-extras/packages-wip/rush; to get in touch
with the maintainer, there is ruby-shell@googlegroups.com.

Cheers,

Subject: A name collision for 'rush'.
Date: Mon, 11 Jul 2011 23:30:03 +0200
Only two days ago, another package was accepted into unstable
from NEW under the name of 'rush'. Thus the name 'rush' must
now be considered as taken, which influences this RFP.

The other package also has an upstream 'rush', which made
my sponsor change the 'gnurush' suggestion for my package
to be 'rush'. It was only as my package entered NEW that
the name collision came to our attention.

Since the Ruby-kin shell, asked for in this thread, has
not seen any activity since March 2009, whereas I have been
refining my package since February 2010, one could argue
that the more active package, now in the unstable branch,
has earned the priority. This message is written in order
to signal 'rush' as a taken name for a binary executable,
for a binary package, as well as for a source package.

The situation is unfortunate, but that is the path a chain
of events happened to follow.

Regards,
  Mats Erik Andersson, DM
