[Rubygems-developers] Side effects of latest 1.1.0

Hello Guys,

I'm getting a few hits on some tickets regarding latest release (1.1.0):

win32-service requirement for 0.3.4 no longer in rubyforge gem repository

This is cache related, as Chad Woolley described previously, but which
current solution breaks all the tests, as detailed in ticket #19228:


This just show up, but is possible other gems faces the same situation
we have here.


[#19274] Cannot retrieve gems after updating to 1.1.0 on Windows

This one is related to Errno::ECONNABORTED not being rescued by the
Remote Fetched, which I found after 1.1.0 release.

I know this was asked too many times by me, but Eric: _we_ do have a
release schedule for RubyGems? Just to give us enough room to test
rubygems in a sandboxed environment at least for 2 days to see if
there are major issues not found by the automated test suite.

disinclination to do so.
