Feature #6823


Where/how should ruby-mode issues be reported?

Added by now (Nikolai Weibull) over 10 years ago. Updated about 4 years ago.

Target version:



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: (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).

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)?

vote to remove ruby-mode.el.

Updated by dgutov (Dmitry Gutov) over 9 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?

Updated by bozhidar (Bozhidar Batsov) over 9 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.

Updated by hsbt (Hiroshi SHIBATA) about 5 years ago

I can create a repository on GitHub. ex. ""

We will discuss this issue at next developer meeting at Dec, 12th.
