Well, I supplied the template myself, but havn't applied it yet on this package.
Shame on me. :) 


I also suggested adding a paragraph concerning ruby to the package naming
guidelines the closely follows the python and perl paragraphs. I hope it will be
merged into the document soon.

Okay, understood. I am not a native english speaker, which is the cause of such

Well, I talked about that with the maintainer of the ruby package itself.


If I look at the packaging guidelines and what is stated about licensing
information, it is obvious to me, that I have to mark to be licensed under the
GPL, cause it is the OSI approved licence. Akira Tagoh (tagoh redhat com)
suggested to use Distributable, as you can see in Ticket 179933. This is the way
I want to go.

This is done as soon as I update to the template. okay.

I agree with you and will release a new package tonight. Thanks for checking.
