Bug #13906

homepage in gemspec

Added by znz (Kazuhiro NISHIYAMA) almost 3 years ago. Updated over 2 years ago.

Target version:


Some gemspec files set ruby-lang site instead of github site to homepage.
Is it intentional?

% git ls-files '*.gemspec' | xargs grep homepage | grep ruby-lang
ext/io/console/io-console.gemspec:  s.homepage = ""
ext/openssl/openssl.gemspec:  s.homepage = "".freeze
ext/sdbm/sdbm.gemspec:  s.homepage = ""
ext/stringio/stringio.gemspec:  s.homepage = "".freeze
ext/strscan/strscan.gemspec:  s.homepage = ""
lib/webrick/webrick.gemspec:  s.homepage = ""

I believe Hiroshi Shibata can answer this, he is busy integrating
gems and doing a lot of work on the .gemspec files + bundler
integration by now, I think. :)

I assume that the ruby github page is a secondary mirror site; the
primary one is and the ruby svn repository. But I
may be wrong so feel free to ignore what I wrote there.

It seems better to link to the place where the development of these libraries happen.
