Well...as far as I know, there is no Copeland project anymore (Tom 
deleted it for me--http://rubyforge.org/projects/copeland comes back as 
"invalid project"). So I don't imagine it's pulling the gem from there.

As for deleting the gem itself from the archive, I imagine that would 
have to be done by Rich or Chad?
