1.9.1 isnt easy to shoehorn into parallen in the existing 1.8.5 space,
specially if you want to use apps that run on either ( eg. puppet isnt
1.9.x friendly; and there are plenty others as well ).
I've gone down the route of building a ruby-ee and ruby-191 into /opt
name space and using that ( and have the developers rvm their local
instances, whatever OS they are on ).
My ruby-191 packaging includes a fair bit of local site only info ( eg.
I upgrade gem to 1.3.6 with an update_system during buildtime ). If
there is any interest in these rpms, I dont mind putting in a bit of
time and cleaning it out.
Having said all this - Jeroen is very close to getting a good package
set together ( look at: http://www.kanarip.com/custom/el5-ruby/ )
