The purpose of the meeting was that we had a chance to hear about possible
complaints and good ideas that users might have, of course not to ask for a
super visor of the package management.

This proposal is a tentative and one-shot approach just for Ruby 1.9.1, not for
Ruby 1.9.z all the way long in the future. We can and should continuously
discuss and develop the new Debian Ruby policy and tools such as ruby-support.
It will take time for them to be matured. Fortunately, the coming Ruby 1.9.2
will install into /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1. Ruby 1.9.3 may or may not be compatible
with 1.9.1. We will have to be prepared by the Ruby 1.9.3 release.
