@sir as a Ruby app developer, it seems odd to me that I would find Ruby gems in the Fedora package manager. As a Ruby gem maintainer, I wouldn't want to burden distro maintainers every time I release a new version.
Do distro package managers even have features like version pinning? Seems like the repos are stuck with the major version that was out when the distro was released, and in a fast-moving world like web app development, you'd be hamstrung to old gem or npm versions.
@sir for example, if I want my app to support a new provider in omniauth that's only available on newer versions of the gem, I'm just stuck for months or years until Centos 7 or Ubuntu 18.04 do their next LTS so I can grab the next major version? I'm genuinely curious here.
