Issue #5097 has been updated by Lucas Nussbaum.


For Linux distributions, it would make sense to have a list both of distributions, and of architectures. There are problems that are distribution-specific, and problems that are architecture-specific.

I can help with Debian (and Ubuntu, since Ubuntu just imports the Debian package), since I'm one of the Ruby maintainers in Debian.

Regarding (Debian) architectures, the status is quite bad[1]:
armel: failing because of a GCC bug, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=634260
ia64: fails with:
compiling cont.c
cont.c: In function 'cont_save_thread':
cont.c:386: error: expected ';' before 'cont'
make[1]: *** [cont.o] Error 1

kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386: tests hang

sparc:

t.rb:2002: [BUG] Bus Error

Author: Yui NARUSE
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal

Target version: 1.9.3


Let's decide the supported platforms.

== Background

http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-19/wiki/SupportedPlatforms

== Process

If you want to support a platform, please declare.
But when a platform dependent bug is reported, it will be assigned to you.

== Current Maintainer

mswin32, mswin64 (Microsoft Windows):
  NAKAMURA Usaku (usa)
mingw32 (Minimalist GNU for Windows):
  Nobuyoshi Nakada (nobu)
IA-64 (Debian GNU/Linux):
  TAKANO Mitsuhiro (takano32)
Symbian OS:
  Alexander Zavorine (azov)
AIX:
  Yutaka Kanemoto (kanemoto)
FreeBSD:
  Akinori MUSHA (knu)
Solaris:
  Naohisa Goto
RHEL, CentOS

Platforms which doesn't have a maintainer are following:
* Debian
* Ubuntu
* Mac OS X (LLVM related issues)
* cygwin (don't work)
* NetBSD (works)
* OpenBSD (it may not work)
* DragonFlyBSD (don't work)
