Now would also be a good time to point out that rubyonrails was only 
released as a stable 1 oh release just about a month back - and is still 
regarded as many people ( who use it ) to need work before it will work 
in an enterprise environment. And a lot of the other support components 
that people tend to want to use with rONr is still rated as Alpha or 
Beta grade code.

Second point, the ruby pkgs in dev.centos.org are not maintained as a 
part of Enterprise Linux by Upstream, and are liable to break apart, 
destroy your machine, cause major business loss and blah blah blah ( the 
point being that those pkgs are NOT EL maintained code at upstream, so 
keep that in mind ).
