Ruby update

user:robb_nl I noticed another point that is not completely inclusive: When you want to update to a new minor version, It should state that you have to CD to the diaspora directory and change to the diaspora user to perform the update.

user:robb_nl I support clear and inclusive instructions when it comes to howto's In the howto it says: First, make sure you stop your diaspora* pod before proceeding to update your installation. Only it fails to describe how to stop diaspora. I suggest to add something like: To stop diaspora open a commandprompt and run 'systemctl stop diaspora.target'

User:Koehn I don't think we should clutter a general updating guide with information about releases, we got the changelog for that. Is the middle step with cd .. && cd - that'll update ruby when necessary not clear enough? Any idea how to improve it? --MrZYX (talk) 08:38, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

It didn't upgrade ruby for me, and there are no instructions on the page to see the changelog. -- Koehn
The cd .. && cd - would tell you to update, including the exact command to run. I'll add a note about the changelog. I still don't see an argument for cluttering this generic instructions with release specific stuff though. Edit: Actually there's a link to the changelog right in the first sentence on the page --MrZYX (talk) 22:31, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
