Why Fullstaq Ruby?

Fullstaq Ruby is a Ruby distribution that’s optimized for server use cases: 50% less memory, faster, easier to install and security-patch because of RPM and DEB packages.

Many people have asked about its vision, purpose and nature:

  • Is it a commercial product, or are there such plans?
  • How will it stay maintained?
  • Who is in control of it?
  • Why are the changes in Fullstaq Ruby not in upstream Ruby? What is the current, and envisioned, relationship between the Ruby core developers and Fullstaq Ruby?

In other words, people are wondering: “how do I know this is, and stays, a real thing that I can count on?” This post addresses these questions.
