Issue #15605 has been updated by headius (Charles Nutter).


I want to be clear that we are very thankful for the work that flori has put in over the years. I understand people don't always have time to work on OSS, or move on to other things, but this is a critical, core Ruby standard library...we need to be able to spin versions much more frequently.

Bug #15605: json library needs a more responsive maintainer
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15605#change-76814

* Author: headius (Charles Nutter)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: all
* Backport: 2.4: UNKNOWN, 2.5: UNKNOWN, 2.6: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
There has not been a release of the json gem since April 2017.

Unfortunately there's a long backlog of bugs and pull requests that have been sitting there, including some that prevent users from upgrading JRuby.

I think most of us who have been working on Ruby for any length of time knows that it has been difficult to get json changes released, and it's now starting to really hold back other development.

I propose that we start looking for an alternative maintainer of the library, find a way to get them push rights, and end this bottleneck.

FWIW only flori and I currently have push rights for the gem, but I do not have push rights for the repository.
