Github and Gems

Posted by Tejus Parikh on July 12, 2008

A lot of gem development has moved to GitHub. This really sucks because Ruby gems insists on updating the metadata for all 900+ gems every single time you want to install something. What should be a couple second process can end up taking over 15 minutes.

If you’re running into this, the new version of Ruby gems fixes this issue. Instructions on how to fix it are available on GitHub’s blog.
