Hey Gordon,

We used to put IronRuby on RubyForge as well,
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4359, but stopped because we didn't think
anyone was using them. Sounds like pik was the one consumer, sorry! As for
the CodePlex direct link issue, I think there is a direct link (via HTTP
GET) that we could publicize, but I'm not sure what it is at this point,
though firing up Fiddler and watching what CodePlex does should answer the
question. If you can't figure it out, we'll find some other way of providing
a direct download link.
