Hi Guix,

attached are a couple of patches that resulted from a recent attempt to
traverse the dependency graph for a dependency of some tool I wanted to

I’m not happy with ‘0007-gnu-Add-ruby-rb-fsevent.patch’ because it is to
be used on a Mac OSX, but unfortunately this is a required input for
a more general file system library that is in my pipeline.

I’m also not happy with disabling tests for ‘ruby-yard’, but I didn’t
find a way to make them pass.
I pushed the first 6 patches with only a couple of minor
comment/description tweaks.  Still need to look into what can be done
about patch 7 and the test suite for yard.
According to [1] the Yard tests can only be run with RSpec version 2.12.
Do you know of any compatibility layer that would allow us to run the
tests with our more recent version of RSpec?  I’m not keen on packaging
a different version of RSpec (+ dependencies), to be honest.

Hi Ricardo,

Stupidly not being aware of this thread I believe I've got ruby-yard packaged without disabling tests just now, by packaging rspec-2 (and skipping the 2 remaining failing tests that write to /homeless-shelter). I think that issue on github might be incorrect (there's no rspec 2.14.3 on rubygems only 2.14.1 which seems to work for me). It actually means 4 new rspec-2 packages in total, there's no dependency issues beyond rspec I don't think. Would you like me to send patches? My suspicion is that there might be other packages that rely on rspec-2 out there, but that's just a hunch more than anything.
