Windows omnibus ruby version


#1

Is there a plan for bumping the ruby version for the windows omnibus client
installer? I modified the omnibus-chef scripts today to package 1.9.3-p429

  • chef 11.4.4 for our internal use and the speed difference between that
    and the currently packaged p286 is…significant (2 seconds vs 15 seconds
    for ‘knife help’ on my machine).

I would put up a pull request for it, if it would help, but the code change
is 3 lines: the version number, dowload url and md5sum for ruby-windows.
Obviously the ease of the code change doesn’t include the testing, etc.

Is there an omnibus specific issue tracker? What is the best way to for me
to help?

Thanks,

Ben Bytheway

You can go ahead and submit the PR (after signing the CLA if you need
to). We’re going to need to tackle this for other reasons as well, but
haven’t started the work on it yet.

Thanks, I’ve summitted the PR, a ticket, and signed the CLA. The PR only
bumps the windows version of ruby, I haven’t touched any other platform.

Thanks,
