Bug#604146: unblock: liboauth-ruby/0.4.4-2, libtwitter-ruby/0.6.0-1

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock libtwitter-ruby/0.6.0-1 (and required package

libtwitter-ruby had a grave functional bug reported as #588522 because
quitted to support basic authentication. Old libtwitter-ruby did not
adopted oauth
authentication.  New libtwitter-ruby upstream has released soon but it uses
liboauth-ruby.  liboauth-ruby is ITPed but not uploaded to debian archive.  So,
I created new liboauth-ruby package instead of him.  It was blocked at new queue
but approved about 2 weeks ago.  So, each of these packages are more
than 10 days old
in unstable.

libtwitter-ruby is major library for using twitter API to post/read
tweets for Ruby.
It was in testing before reporting authentication bug and no inportant bugs were

So, I think including these useful library in our new release is
needed for our users.
We have no application package using them but I think a lot of user
apps including
mine are using.  Twitter is one of mejor messaging tools, therefore we
need to add
these packages.
