Source: libruby2.1
Version: 2.1.5-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that libruby2.1 is generating .gemspec files with an output that depends
on the timezone.

The attached patch normalises the time to UTC before outputting. Once
applied, packages that use gem2deb, etc etc can be built reproducibly
in our reproducible toolchain.
