Thanks for the update.

What is the command to run the specs on my local box?

Tried this:
E:\IronRuby\trunk>rake spec
(in E:/IronRuby/trunk)
2179 examples, 83 failures

rake mspec doesn't work (as reported previously).

Is that just not available at the moment publicly?

We're probably passing about 64% of the core spec's right now, which test the builtin libraries, and about 94% of the language specs. The library spec's are so incomplete that the number doesn't mean anything.
