This is not fixed in all versions yet.


This bug is in ruby1.8 in toutatis, ruby1.9.1 in toutatis, and ruby1.8 in belenos. The package helper shouldn't be used for ruby1.9.1 in belenos, as the file is already free in that version.

Now the question is, why is ruby1.8 even in belenos? It's not there in trusty, which is why the package helper failed (look at jenkins output).

So, remove the helper from Belenos, add make-ruby1.9.1 to Toutatis, and manually remove ruby1.8 from the Belenos repos (but not Toutatis).
