I just addressed some corrections in my fork (under windows branch):
Consider MinGW also as valid Windows platform, which improves the
support for upcoming one-click installer based on it:
Reordered how Rake find system-wide Rakefile (HOME,
HOMEDRIVE+HOMEPATH, APPDATA and then USERPROFILE)
Corrected some mocks during Win32 tests that generated some errors
when executing test under Windows:
Corrected some tests and made them platform specific:
Make Rakefile matching really case insensitive:
Most of those are just to remove the noise around executing test under Windows.
I needed to patch that to be able to work and release on other
packages like DataMapper, Merb, Hoe, ParseTree and RubyInline.
The one pending thing I noticed is how system with multiple args is
working, which I believe I'm missing something from this thread:
