Hello there,

I want to import the Ruby package 'rouge' 2.0.7 into Guix. I'm new to

someone with more Ruby experience can tell me what's the right way here?

OK, I thought this is an easy one, because it has no dependencies:
Unfortunately, as you found, often the dependencies needed for testing are sometimes not listed at, since it is not common for tests to be run as part of the "gem install" installation process.

I started with:

guix import gem rouge > rouge.scm

Then added some import headers in the file and tried to build it with
`block in verify_gemfile_dependencies_are_found!': Could not find gem
'wrong' in any of the gem sources listed in your Gemfile.

Does that mean that I have to install
'wrong' ( that itself has 5
dependencies, 4 are not in Guix?
That seems to be the case, unfortunately. There also seems to be some other gems in the Gemfile which aren't yet packaged for Guix. There are also a number of packages in the wip-rails branch on savannah which might be of use - these aren't quite ready yet but if there was interest I could finish them off.

If the number of packages needed gets too large, then there may be a case for not running the tests in some packages.

Good luck.
