In the past I believe I used srpms from Fedora. I haven't had to use
Ruby in almost two years now (yay), so I'm not sure if it still holds
true now. I recall some issue with the latest Fedora where the rpm
file format changed or compression changed or something making it
slightly incompatible with CentOS, though not difficult to work
around.

I also seek out srpms from OpenSUSE as well on occasion if I can't
find them elsewhere, I think my nagios 3 SRPMs are from OpenSUSE
