Hi all -

Something seems to have changed in the indexer; only certain gems are
getting picked up.  For example, for wxruby we now see only:

==========================
$ gem install wxruby
Select which gem to install for your platform (i686-linux)
 1. wxruby 1.9.2 (x86_64-linux)
 2. wxruby 1.9.1 (x86_64-linux)
 3. Cancel installation
==========================

But there are a bunch of gems for different platforms available:

==========================
$ ls /var/www/gems/gems/ | grep wxruby-
wxruby-1.9.0-i386-mswin32.gem
wxruby-1.9.0-i686-darwin8.4.1.gem
wxruby-1.9.0-i686-linux.gem
wxruby-1.9.0-powerpc-darwin8.10.0.gem
wxruby-1.9.1-i386-mswin32.gem
wxruby-1.9.1-i686-darwin8.4.1.gem
wxruby-1.9.1-i686-linux.gem
wxruby-1.9.1-powerpc-darwin8.3.0.gem
wxruby-1.9.1-x86_64-linux.gem
wxruby-1.9.2-i386-mswin32.gem
wxruby-1.9.2-i686-darwin8.8.2.gem
wxruby-1.9.2-i686-linux.gem
wxruby-1.9.2-powerpc-darwin8.10.0.gem
wxruby-1.9.2-x86_64-linux.gem
==========================

Eric, maybe it's only getting the last gem for each name - something
like that?

Thanks,

Tom
