As we have some essential packages like libselinux that have a ruby
binding, and upload of any of them would make ruby de facto essential.
I am therefore raising the severity.

Indeed I confirm that:
@@ -40,7 +40,8 @@ include Gem2Deb
std_deps << dep
- newdeps = (std_deps + [libruby_deps.join(' | ')] + [ruby_deps.join(' |
+ upper_bound = RubyDebianDev.ruby_upper_bound
+ newdeps = (std_deps + [libruby_deps.join(' | ')] + [ruby_deps.join(' |
')] + [upper_bound]).join(', ')
The upper_bound should only be added if libruby_deps or ruby_deps are not empty.
