I liked your idea about auto-gemifying RAA packages; that's one of the
reasons I wanted access to some form of RAA project metadata list (XML,
YAML, XML-RPC, SOAP, whatever). But even raa-install is broken at the
moment; if you look at the source code, it's fetching the project list
from http://narf-lib.sf.net/raa/raa-xml-compacted.xml.gz, which is
(presumably) a mirror of the now non-existant RAA raa-xml.xml file, so
it hasn't updated since May 5th.
(Obviously this isn't directed at Patrick, who already knows how raa-install
I want my RAA data already :(. I think I'll bring it up on ruby-talk.
