currently only two packages depend on ruby-setup to build: ruby-tioga and ruby-facets. given that setup.rb is deprecated for a very long time -- the Ruby community completely moved to rubygems -- IMO we should: - migrate those packages away from ruby-setup - remove support for ruby-setup from gem2deb - remove ruby-setup from the archive
