Here I am then :)
Does anyone mind if I bump net/ruby-drb to v2?
A quick 'grep drb /usr/pkgsrc/*/*/Makefile' only returned the package
itself, so I dont think this will break anything in pkgsrc (or wip).
I think the v2 protocol is closer to the one used in ruby 1.8, so in some
ways it would make sense to bump the version now. Or should I stick a ruby-drb2
in wip and let someone else worry about renaming when (if) it goes into pkgsrc?
( How do you guys normally handle major version changes? It seems a bit messy to
have a pkgname-N for all N > 1 ... )
I went to the museum where they had all the heads and arms from the
statues that are in all the other museums.
