Hello all,

I'm using Ruby on Debian GNU/Linux.  Ruby itself
and its standard library were installed as Debian
packages.  Now, I want to add Ruby libraries
which aren't standard part of Ruby.  What do
people do?  I heard of "rubygem".  Is it a packaging
system for Ruby?  How does it interact with the
packaging system of Debian?

I could just download the sources of those libraries
and install them under ~/lib/ruby or /usr/local/lib/ruby
or some such places.  But, I guess there are better,
more organized, and standard ways.

Regards,
Ryo
