Bringing closer Debian and Rails: Bridging apparently incompatible cultures

Ruby on Rails has become a very popular framework for Web-based applications. And, even though Rails itself is neatly packaged and integrated in Debian, supporting Rails applications (specially in a large-scale provider) can prove rather difficult. Besides the core application, we face problems such as handling plugins, concurrent versions, and the like. In this BoF session we discussed the different problems we face, looking towards adequate solutions. This talk was presented at DebConf 8, Mar del Plata, Argentina.
