ruby-interpreter-is-deprecated

Starting with ruby2.3, Ruby interpreter packages stopped providing the ruby-interpreter virtual package. It should no longer be used as a prerequisite.

In packages using gem2deb, please consider using ${ruby:Depends}. It will expand automatically to the prerequisites the package needs (including the interpreter as well as the libraries) and can replace all other Ruby-related dependency declarations.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit f5107b6. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check languages/ruby.

Visibility: warning

The following 782 source packages in the archive triggered the tag 808 times (in any Lintian version).

There were no overrides.
