[Ironruby-core] Did Something Changed Again in Spec...

I'm sorry if I offended you that wasn't my intention. Don't tell me I'm not

1. Do you know what gems are and how they work? It's like the GAC
2. It's easy to find out the location of a certain file from script and go
from there (killing the need for the PATH variable)
3. exactly it's about a repeatable and scriptable process. so I don't think
an installer will do the trick you know, but invoking an included script
4. I fully realise what a build server is, how you do automated deployments
and how you provision many machines fast and quite frankly script the lot so
I don't have to do it twice.

So my advice stands
Buy a book on batch scripting
learn how ruby works.

if you're provisioning a server the idea is that you're in control of where
you download and extract the zip.
so you know and it will probably be the same on another server you create
and provision with your script (rocket science, I think not) killing the
need for a preordained location which probably isn't where I want it.
You don't even need to set the path and if you're running a script it's easy
to do so in the script.
