Hello!

My name is Filipe and I'm from the Debian ruby-extras team.

Some time ago, Jens Kraemer created packages for mongrel and
gem plugin. Now, me and gwolf joined forces with him and we are working
to create oficial debian packages for mongrel.

So, we have some favors to ask from you (the mongrel developers), as
those favors are not big things:

* Could you please upload tar.gz files together with your gems files?
* In this tar, could the files be with the current date, not in year 
1969? :D tar complains a lot about this...
* When release candidates are released, can you append something like
"~rc1" to the tar file? This help debian auto tools to check new
releases.
* Finally,  I got this great idea for Mongrel.  All you have to do is
completely change the internal processing, add 200 more methods to the
HTTP parser, and... no. Just joking. Just the other 3 would be great!

The Debian ruby-extras team has a page[1] dedicated to upstream
developers, where those and other things that help *nix distributions
are described.

Regards,
