Issue #13551 has been updated by duerst (Martin Drst).

Status changed from Open to Feedback

What do you mean by 'intuitive'?

How frequent/important is this?

It's easily possible as follows:

```
class Array
  class << self
    alias :my_new :new
  end
end

Array.my_new # => []
```

Feature #13551: Add a method to alias class methods

----------------------------------------
There doesn't seem to be an intuitive way to alias class methods.

Perhaps we can add a method such as 

~~~ ruby
alias_class_method :new_name, :old_name
~~~
