Pleas do not be mistaken. We are not speaking about building gems from
sources. We are speaking about building from package manager output,
i.e. build gem from gem.
So we are shipping stuff, which is not build from other stuff we ship, but
from magic upstream binaries? Not nice at all.

It is worth noting that .java files compiled into .class files or .jar
files is not the same thing as .rb files. .rb files are not compiled*
However I have seen gem files containing bundled jar files. Not sure if
gem unpacking actually helps things, but it might make it more easy to
spot perhaps. There as easy ways to detect such bundling though, so not
a problem. Just though I'd mention this use case

Yes, there are gems with bundled jar files. There are also gems which might carry other binaries. For this case, there apply general Fedora's "No inclusion of pre-built binaries or libraries" and "Duplication of system libraries" policies, nothing specific is needed for Ruby.

Please note that we proposed to do "gem install" in %prep section which "unpacks" the gem content among other things, so you can spot such files easily.
