Re: bosh-init install question

Hi Lynn,

The ruby dependencies are necessary for bosh-init, because it renders manifest templates with ruby. See for all its beauty.

Warm regards

bosh-init (or the new bosh2 cli's create-env command) will download some yet-to-be-compiled modules called CPIs. Some CPIs are written in Ruby - the ruby itself is also downloaded automatically and installed in a special private place; but Ruby has some system dependencies to work. Instead of also downloading those as well, the CPI module will just require that you have them pre installed.
