I also investigated the other possibility (killing ruby1.9 on hppa), but
it's not easy, since ruby1.9 is a build-dependency for many packages.
Some of them are Ruby libs and could simply be NFUed as well, but others
are more annoying.
Sources packages affected:
ruby1.9 # NFU
libcairo-ruby # NFU
ruby-gnome2 # NFU (dep on libcairo-ruby)
libdb-ruby # NFU
libexif-ruby # NFU
libfcgi-ruby # NFU
libgpgme-ruby # NFU
libhpricot-ruby # NFU
libinotify-ruby # NFU
mapserver # NMU to remove ruby1.9 package?
ncurses-ruby # NFU
rrdtool # NMU to remove ruby1.9 package?
stfl # NMU to remove ruby1.9 package?
The list was generated manually. It might make sense to process those
packages, and then play with edos-(build)?debcheck to pick up the other
I won't have time to work on that.
