Yes, that is correct. You can confirm it by:

$ scl enable ruby200 'gem -v'

No, there is not RubyGems 2.2.0 available for ruby200 collection. We
ship only RubyGems version provided with upstream Ruby and that is
RubyGems 2.0.14 for Ruby 2.0.

Moreover, there were more binary extension management changes in
RubyGems 2.2.0 except the patch you are referring to, so I don't think
they can be easily retrofitted for ruby200 scl.

However, I am wondering why you should be interested in RubyGems 2.2
just due to this specific change?

I quoted Vit replies and CC'ed him for more.
