[Rubygems-developers] gem update: Message [lacks] a verb :-)

When I do gem update I get:
brains# gem update
Upgrading installed gems...
All gems up to date
I think this SHOULD be 'All gems are up to date' -- it is correct
colloquial English, of course, but for people trying to translate
this the lack of a verb could be problematic. Using babelfish twice:
all gems up to date -> <japanese> -> The up-to-date all jewels
all gems are up to date -> <japanese> -> jewel everything is up-to-date
Which seems much clearer to my mind.
