[Rubygems-developers] Question on GEM_PATH

When I use GEM_PATH to add an additional local repository to be used,
what dirs must be in that repository? gems? specifications? docs?
Also, a related question. If I have a source checkout of a gem
locally, can I somehow put it on my GEM_PATH to be loaded, even if it
doesn't follow the standard repository layout? The use case would be
to perform updates on a dependency gem, and have those updates
immediately usable by a separate local app, without having to actually
do the step to build and install the gem to a local repository.
