I am interested to begin maintaining a package for Ruby 1.9.1. I
wanted to ask some questions about this though.

1.) How should Ruby 1.9 be packaged? Explanation: Right now there are
packages for Ruby 1.8.7; if we follow the pattern of various Linux
distros, Ruby 1.9.1 would go in as a separate package named perhaps
ruby19 instead of the default ruby, which would continue to represent
the 1.8.x branch.
2.) Is there a current maintainer for the ruby package that I should
get in touch with to prevent trampling on their toes? If not, I am
more than willing to take on maintenance of the ruby package overall.
