[Rubygems-developers] "Default" Gem Repositories?

If everyone has their own gem repo, then maybe it is a pointless to
try and avoid having separate repositories for JRuby gems, etc.

Is this something to be concerned about?

What is the future of gems.rubyforge.org?

What happens when newbies hear about a cool new gem, but don't know to
look elsewhere than gems.rubyforge.org?

Should the git repo go into the default .gemrc as a standard source?
If so, why?  If not, why?

Does this have any implications for caching/performance issues in rubygems?
