I named it ruby-yajl-ruby because I was assuming the convention to be
ruby-{gemname}. A quick query for "ruby-%-ruby" returns another
package that's thus named: ruby-sqlite3-ruby. There's also another
package named sqlite3-ruby in AUR, but there's no ruby-sqlite3.

Although ruby-yajl-ruby looks a bit redundant, I personally consider
it the correct naming in principle. As such, for the sqlite3-ruby gem,
the correct package name is ruby-sqlite3-ruby.

Is there a documentation on this package naming convention?
