Bug#857197: ITP: ruby-psych -- A libyaml wrapper for Ruby

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Miguel Landaeta <nomadium@debian.org>

* Package name    : ruby-psych
  Version         : 2.2.4
  Upstream Author : Aaron Patterson <tenderlove@github.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/ruby/psych
* License         : Expat
  Programming Lang: Ruby, C, Java
  Description     : A libyaml wrapper for Ruby

 ruby-psych is a YAML parser and emitter. Psych leverages libyaml for its
 YAML parsing and emitting capabilities. In addition to wrapping
 libyaml, Psych also knows how to serialize and de-serialize most Ruby
 objects to and from the YAML format.
 Psych has been included with the main Ruby implementation since 1.9.2,
 and is the default YAML parser from 1.9.3 and beyond.

 - Although psych is part of the Ruby standard library and is included
   in libruby2.3 package, I propose to package this library in a
   separate package mainly for two reasons:

   * A Ruby developer could want or need a more updated version of
   this library than the one bundle in the standard library. This will
   be provided in ruby-psych package.

   * JRuby depends on psych Java extension. Currently this extension is
   being bundled in jruby package but the right thing is to have this in
   a jruby-psych package.

 - It will be maintained in Debian Ruby Extras Maintainers team.
