Issue #15605 has been updated by hsbt (Hiroshi SHIBATA).

Assignee set to hsbt (Hiroshi SHIBATA)
Status changed from Open to Assigned
Tracker changed from Misc to Feature

I submit the backport changes from ruby core to flori/json at https://github.com/flori/json/pull/388

We need to bump version to ruby repository like 2.2.1 because the same version of flori/json and ruby core confuse ruby users.

I hope to merge the above pull request, bump version and cut off a new release by flori. When there is no response from flori, We should release 2.2.1 ourselves.

@headius Can you help me for pushing json gem?

Feature #15605: json library needs more frequent releases

----------------------------------------
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.
