Posted in Question About Railties, rails repo and rails gems

I am having a hard time understanding the rails repo. Active record, railties and all others(action view, etc) are in a monorepo. rails/rails.

They are all separate gems as well? Can someone explain this to me? Each action/active is a gem & available on rubygems.

Or is the rails repo /activerecord boilerplate to connect to the actual gem?

Tldr: what's the difference between activerecord gem and the folder that sits in rails repo titled "activerecord"?


Edit: it looks like the individual gems (activerecord) is not on rubygems. Now I am more confused. When I run "bundler list" it treats each one as a separate gem. Why is this?
