It uses ruby-1.8.6p287 so we can install gems, and even check them in, but not compromise the integrity of anything under redist_libs: it’s the cleanroom copy of the Ruby libraries. If you diff them your only see these changes: certain words filtered out that Microsoft does not allow in source code, bugs in the standard libs (using + instead of ^ with hashes) and certain library files removed that IronRuby won’t support (eg. Tk).

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Dev.bat and GEM_PATH

Should Dev.bat be setting the GEM_PATH like this:

%MERLIN_ROOT%\..\External.LCA_RESTRICTED\Languages\Ruby\ruby-1.8.6p287\lib\ruby\gems\1.8

or like this:

%MERLIN_ROOT%\..\External.LCA_RESTRICTED\Languages\Ruby\redist_libs\ruby\gems\1.8?
