For me it makes more sense to use ruby-$gemname for *all* packages created from gems. It makes things simpler.

I agree. I already do this for several of my packages, such as ruby-adsfAUR, ruby-reekAUR, and ruby-nanocAUR.

Python Package Guidelines#Package naming has a similar naming convention: python-packagename for libs and packagename for applications. If the naming standard changes for Ruby packages, then the naming standard should also change for Python packages, purely for the sake of consistency.

I believe all other language PKGBUILD guidelines (perl/python/..) have the same rule. And all of them should be changed.

I would love to see that happen. I don't know the magnitude of such a task or who would need to be convinced. Ichimonji10 (talk) 20:40, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
