Date: Mon, 16 Feb 2009 21:37:37 -0300
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: liblocale-ruby
Severity: serious

Using this library (actually, setting the LC_NUMERIC part of the locale)
breaks several Ruby applications because of the way Ruby (at least 1.8
version) implements printing of floating point numbers.

It also conflicts with libgettext-ruby (see #470798). So at least until
we can find a solution for these problems (or decide to remove this
package from Debian), this package must not go into a release.

Should the current package in testing be removed? If so please request
its removal on the debian-release mailing list.

Cheers

Hi there,

Please remove the liblocale-ruby package from testing. The maintainers
(pkg-ruby-extras team) didn't find yet a good sollution for problems
introduced by the use of this library. See #515708 for details.  The
package is also dead upstream.

(I'not on the list, so I'd like to be copied on eventual replies)

Thanks,
