DEV: Remove rb-inotify gem from Gemfile (PR #10574)

We are no longer directly referencing the rb-inotify gem directly in code. This was just a spec level dependency anyways.

Using git log -S "Inotify" resulted in these two commits as usages of Inotify:

  • b56b11d96aafa5cd9e2f004ae631348fba4574ae
  • 9cf03b352cb2bff7c9a7a56211d56a921ed13664

both from 2013, but we no longer are using inotify in

which appears to be the only file that was using it.

Based on this info we can safely remove rb-inotify from the Gemfile.

Just as a side note we still do have a couple of gems that do have rb-inotify as a dependency: listen, and lru_redux.

I didn’t add any additional tests because if one of the tests was actually using this gem I would hope that it would fail.


Looks good to me :+1:
