reassign 591152 librmagick-ruby
clone 591152 -1
severity -1 normal
retitle -1 librmagick-ruby should not be installable with imagemagick
version not binary-compatible


  This is again a problem with librmagick... I guess a rebuild (and an
update to the new upstream, now it's out) will sort it out right.

  Now that I'm at it, we have two problems at the moment:

  * the main one is that librmagick-ruby simply does not work, which
is easily fixed by rebuilding as mentioned above;
  * the second one is that librmagick-ruby is very easily broken by
newer versions of imagemagick, which is actually very hard to track.
This will need some thinking; possibly a solution would be a strict
versioned dependency along if only binNMUs for each imagemagick
release ?


      Vincent, on its way to upload the newer librmagick-ruby
