I successfully packaged redmine for rails 2.3.5, and it seems to run fine.
It's very nice to have it now, and i thank you for that.

However i have some remarks :
* /usr/share/doc/rails/README.Debian is outdated.
  It mentions rails-app-debianize, which has disappeared.
* accordingly, some documentation about how to use rails would be nice.
  in the case of redmine, i simply had to
  ln -s /usr/share/rails-ruby1.8 vendor/rails
  and removed previous links that's been setup by rails-app-debianize
* i can't run integration tests. It's been reported already [0], let's hope
  it's been fixed in 2.3.8.
* Warning: Gem::Dependency#version_requirements= is deprecated is still
  there. That scares people :)
