It would be really useful if the wishlist also stated who requested it
with a very brief reason - two of my packages (ruby-activesupport and
ruby-activerecord) are on that list. 

I don't really want to put them into EPEL; I'd much rather put all of
the rails gems in there, (rubygem-rails and dependencies), but I'd like
to have a quick chat with whoever wants those packages to make sure that
that is what they need.
