I don't understand why you haven't rebuild these packages with Ruby 2.1 to
verify whether they build, and file bugs for those that don't.

I've rebuild these two packages, and they both build fine with Ruby 2.1
Please BinNMU them when Ruby 2.0 is removed.

I've not rebuild the ruby-* packages listed above. There is currently work
in progress to update the NetCDF packages, so if there are Ruby 2.1 issues
they may be addressed in the process.
