Hoary has the version which was available on the freeze for it and
usually there is no version change for a stable distro. Anyway this is
probably a good reason to update, you just have to find somebody not too
busy wanting to tackle that.

That's the defaut assignement, that means that the bug is not assigned
to somebody but on the common list of bugs.

That's July, some people are on holidays, other are quite busy and I'm
not sure than a lot of these people use ruby, so it's not easy to update
something you don't use for a stable distro.
