Oof, that's a hard (but good) question.  I haven't really thought about
packaging Rails apps yet.  And as you remark we indeed don't have one

Gunnar, do you have any ideas on how this should work?
I mean, webapps in general, for example imp..  you install them and then
somehow hook them up in the webserver of choice (most of the time
includes some documentation).
If so, I would say...  Rails apps are put in /usr/share/rails or
something..  a rails app is kind of like a gem, you just put everything
there and then hook the index.{cgi,fcgi,rb} up IIRC?
We probably should involve the Rails maintainer in this and
add this to our upcoming app & lib policy,  because I'm sure that more
Rails apps are to follow.
