Details - Hi,
ruby package in Siwenna doesn't contain documentation. If you try to
run ri, you will get:

No ri documentation found in:

Was rdoc run to create documentation?

Installing Documentation
'ri' uses a database of documentation built by the RDoc utility.

So, how do you install this documentation on your system? It depends
on how you installed Ruby.

_If you installed Ruby from source files_ (that is, if it some point
you typed 'make' during the process :), you can install the RDoc
documentation yourself. Just go back to the place where you have your
Ruby source and type

   make install-doc

You'll probably need to do this as a superuser, as the documentation
isinstalled in the Ruby target tree (normally somewhere under

_If you installed Ruby from a binary distribution_ (perhaps using a
one-click installer, or using some other packaging system), then the
team that produced the package probably forgot to package the
documentation as well. Contact them, and see if they can add it to the
next release.

I looked at FrugalBuild of ruby in current repository and it's the
same like this one in 0.5, so I suppose there's the same problem.
