[WANTED] Solaris related modules
 
Hi all,

There's a couple Solaris related things I'd like if anyone needs a Ruby
related project. The first is an app that can take a gem spec and
convert it into a Solaris package (.pkg). The second is a wrapper for
Solaris services.

Also, I wouldn't mind a wrapper for pkg-config while I'm at it. I
noticed that there's a very basic one included with rcairo, but it
needs work, and ought to be bundled separately.

Any takers? I don't have time for these myself, but I thought someone
else might be interested. I'd be willing to host them on RubyForge if
there are any takers. Below are some related links.

Regards,

Dan

Okay, you've spent too much time in the snow ;)

Seriously, though, what do you see as the benefit of converting a gem
into a Solaris package?

Short answer? System administration.

Long answer? I eventually hope to setup a tie-in with blastwave [1]
and/or sunfreeware [2], and generally make Ruby more popular among
system administrators using the Solaris platform.

Dan

Avoiding having end users handle Yet Another Package Manager. Same
reason why anyone would use .debs or ruby libs on Debian.

Does Solaris use package repositories? This way, you could make
automated builds and let's say integrate all rubyforge gems into the
Solaris package management very, very easily. You can never go wrong
with more easy integration.
