In July, Ruby Together was supported by 44 different companies, including Sapphire member Stripe, and 102 developer members. Thanks to all of our members for making everything that we do possible. <3
In July, we improved Bundler’s Issue Template for our maintainers and contributors. We also worked on improving performance optimizations, and simplified our CI Workflow to make all Bundler testing combinations easier to maintain.
gem update --system --silent and configured RubyGems branch protection. We’ve also fixed
rake release failing in the following instances:
- when the credentials file is missing
- when a deprecation warning is triggered in the Github API
- when all local tags are pushed instead of only the release tag.
As always, we continue to fix bugs, review PRs, follow up with issues and perform ongoing maintenance.
This month, RubyGems and Bundler gained 227 new commits, contributed by 15 authors. There were 146 additions and 170 deletions across 1,070 files.
RubyGems.org saw a lot of activity this month with 30 merged pull requests.
We updated our sendgrid account subscription to allocate dedicated IP, and setup rDNS and gmail postmaster. We also filed a support ticket with Fastly for an IPv6 connection issue, searched honeycomb’s RubyGems.org dataset for API keys and disabled their Fastly integration, and sent an email notification about it to our users.
We’ve migrated to sidecar nginx proxy running on EKS cluster from legacy SPOF nginx running on a dedicated host. We also updated our EKS cluster to v1.16.
Over on help.rubygems.org we resolved tickets, fixed a TypeError on the signup page, and removed unused daemons gems from the Gemfile.
In addition to those improvements, we completed the following:
debugged Outlook marking RubyGems.org mails as spam and filed a support ticket for shared IP update
worked on a PR for client side support of API key scopes and updated the server-side PR
cleaned up failed jobs with
rake task to delete dangling dependency reports and set
NoMethodError on transitive dependency page
removed unused dependencies from dockerfile (#2449)
