There is currently no plan to use RubySpec with MacRuby, though I
would be very interested to run MacRuby against a 1.9 RubySpec suite.
Last time I checked (a couple of months ago) no 1.9 suite was
available yet. I do not follow the RubySpec project to know if the
situation has changed since, but googling a little bit did not reveal
Ideally both MacRuby and Ruby 1.9 (YARV) should be covered by the same
RubySpec suite, so if one is developed for Ruby 1.9 we should be able
to reuse it for MacRuby. We could then extend it for MacRuby-only
If you have any news about this or willing to help the RubySpec guys
by working on the 1.9 suite, please let me know. I would be glad to
ship a 1.9 suite as part of MacRuby.
