According to https://endoflife.software/programming-languages/server-side-scripting/ruby
ruby 2.4 will go end-of-life in march, where the new release of nixpkgs
will be cut. We won't be able to support it for security updates.

Remove all references to ruby_2_4 and add ruby_2_7 instead where
missing.

Mark packages that depend on ruby 2.4 as broken:

  • chefdk
  • sonic-pi
Motivation for this change

rubyPackages_2_4.libv8 was breaking in #76595 which prompted me to look at the ruby situation.

Ruby 2.4 will be EOL for our next release. We also have a policy of keeping only 3 versions of the same thing in nixpkgs.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

We do?

Maybe policy is too strong of a word. It's a number I have seen in multiple places (don't have the sources right now). Typically libraries would have between 1 and 2, with a strong bias towards 1. Programs between 1-3. Programming languages, around 3.

I don’t have strong feelings about doing this now or in a few months.

Actually, I think we should hold off. People might be, say, using 2.4 at work and not upgraded yet, with a schedule to do so before EOL (I was in this situation with 2.3 last year). I think maybe we should give them until a little closer to the deadline.

that's fine, they can stay on 19.09 for a bit longer

We also keep Python 2.7, despite it going EOL. It should however be possible to disable the derivation if issues come up that we cannot resolve.

in that case the bits that add ruby 2.7 should probably be cherry-picked out of this PR

Marking sonic-pi as broken here is fine, just read sonic-pi-net/sonic-pi#2179 (comment) and you'll get the idea.
