I saw this the other day and though I would post a bit of it here.

I am assuming that in this case beos/haiku is the same.

I don't really have a lot of knowledge in this area but am suspecting that becoming supported again later would be a lot more
difficult then finding a maintainer before it was dropped.

Really loved BEOS, and recently have been learning Ruby so would love to be able to use both in the future.


Ruby 1.9.0-3 is released
From: "Yugui (Yuki Sonoda)" <yugui yugui.jp <http://yugui.jp>>

== Platforms
Ruby 1.9 no longer supports the following platforms because they have no
active maintainer.
* BeOS
* WinCE
* OS/2
* Interix
* bcc32
* Classic MacOS
* djgpp
* human68k

I will remove platform-specific codes for them from Ruby, unless someone
become a maintainer by 25 Sep.
