After some discussion along with PR pkg/29227, I'll merge these
package to ruby base package.
ruby-digest => ruby16 and ruby18
ruby-openssl => ruby18
o ruby-digest provide message digest libraries (md5, cmd160, sha1 and
sha2). Since these message digest functions are used by standard
Ruby's libraries, separating ruby-digest break thses libraries
unusable unless installing ruby-digest package.
o ruby-digest (really Ruby 1.6.8 and Ruby 1.8.2) assume to use OpenSSL
for most of message digest functions (md5, cmd160 and sha1). So,
merging ruby-digest package to ruby16 or ruby18 results these
packages depend on OpenSSL (which might be provided by base system).
o Ruby 1.8 includes openssl extention library. If ruby18 package
assume existence of OpenSSL, there is no reason to separate
Drawback is ruby16 and ruby18 depends on OpenSSL, so openssl package
would be needed on some platforms.
