[Rubygems-developers] Weired problem with dependency management

I quote the commands and output verbatim below, but basically, I
installed copland to try out the "automatically installing log4r"
feature.  According to the output, log4r and copland were installed.
It appears, however, that copland was not actually installed, though
log4r was!

I'll dig into the source if no-one else does, but I'm sure you'll
agree this is worth reporting :)


$ gem -i copland-0.2
#<RubyGemsOptions:0x1018fcd0 @argument="copland-0.2", @operation=:install>

Attempting local installation of 'copland-0.2'
 -> Local installation can't proceed: Unknown gem file 'copland-0.2'
Attempting remote installation of 'copland-0.2'
Successfully installed log4r version 1.0.5
Successfully installed copland version 0.2.0

$ gem -l -L
