Hello,

I was wondering about the relation between rpa-base and/or ruby-gems
and native package installers on linux like APT on Debian and Portage
on Gentoo.

Is it the intention that Debian/Portage build their own version of
packages like ruby-opengl, ruby-gtk2,... or that they build a kind of
'dumb' package which relies on rpa-base/ruby-gems to install those
packages ?  Or that those systems live next to each other ?  Or is it
mainly meant to use those tools as a regular user with the purpose of
having your own versions of the ruby libraries you want without
needing superuser access ?

Just wondering..
