June 2020 RubyGems Updates

Welcome to the RubyGems monthly update! As part of our efforts at Ruby Together, we publish a recap of the work that we’ve done the previous month. Read on to find out what updates were made to RubyGems and in June.

RubyGems News

In June, RubyGems saw significant improvements on Bundler and RubyGems development. We released Bundler 2.2.0.rc.1 and RubyGems 3.2.0.rc.1! 🎉

We also worked on synchronizing the latest versions of both libraries with ruby-core, and fixed issues that came up. We also enforced our ruby-core workflow to try to prevent further tedious integrations with ruby-core in the future by catching issues early and minimizing the back and forth of patches between upstream and downstream.

We changed bundler specs to raise by default when any subcommand fails. This action helped reveal two bugs (which we of course, fixed!). We’ve adapted bundler release tasks to a new repository layout and now have the changelog draft up-to-date.

We’ve also implemented a fix to stop soft-validating gemspecs (e.g. giving validations that only warn) except for in gem-authoring contexts. We also added a slack notification to the maintainers channel that triggers whenever the ruby-head builds starts failing. We simplified our CI Workflows and did some final cleanup PRs related to CI failures on jruby.

Outside of these major highlights, we continue to fix bugs, review PRs, improve our documentation, cleanup test suites, and continue our usual ongoing maintenance.

In total, RubyGems gained 243 new commits, contributed by 15 authors. There were 3003 additions and 2432 deletions across 313 files. News

This month, we added terraform module for RDS monitors and added alerts on rubgems-production, rubygems-staging and shipit instances. We followed up with fixes on that have now been deployed and verified! We also debugged failed delayed jobs in production and created a fix for issues we found with regex validation with user email. rubygems/ rubygems/

In addition to that, We made a PR to send mail update confirmation when a user changes their email address, added a guide for rate limits, and made the following improvements:

As always, we continued to fix bugs, and provide help on and ongoing support work.

In June, gained 119 new commits, contributed by 10 authors. There were 1256 additions and 489 deletions across 86 files.
