The exception of RubyGems 1.2.0-2 in unstable has already been accepted by the
release team. It will come to Lenny.

I have just uploaded RubyGems 1.2.0-3 which contains a dependency package
(rubygems) and sent an exception request to debian-release.

#495320 is not a bug. The user purged the package, which results in removing the
installed gem. I have just changed the severity to wishlist.
