Feature #6823

Where/how should ruby-mode issues be reported?

I’ve previously reported a couple of issues with ruby-mode, namely




They’ve seen no progress.

Just to be clear, am I reporting these issues to the correct bug tracker?

There are quite a few ruby-mode bugs that are going stale:

http://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/5670 (dup of 5382, but is more
explicit, so should replace 5382)

And some new ones:


A comment from Shyouhei on


states that one should report this to the Emacs developers. Is this
correct? If so, all these issues should be reported there and closed.
Also, ruby-mode.el should then be removed from the Ruby repository to
avoid any confusion (well, it should really be removed either way).

  • Target version changed from 2.0.0 to next minor

Currently, I hesitate to drop ruby-mode.el from 2.0.0.
I'm setting to next minor tentatively. But I'm open to any opinion (before code freeze).

Anyone knows a similar case where some parts are transfered to other projects (such as Emacs)?

#3 Updated by Nobuyoshi Nakada about 3 years ago

vote to remove ruby-mode.el.

#4 Updated by Dmitry Gutov over 2 years ago

I vote to remove it as well.

Is there anything we can or should do in the Emacs trunk to speed it up?

#5 Updated by Bozhidar Batsov over 2 years ago

I also support the removal of ruby-mode.el. Its presence in the Ruby codebase creates a lot of confusion for Emacs users.
