I see the author of verion 0.0.1 is listed as a co-owner of the
tarpipe project. I see the 0.1.1 gem listed in the files area, but no
0.0.1 version. Did you or he release version 0.0.1 from a different
project? Once a gem is released, you must upload new versions to the
same project name (this protects you from someone else releasing a gem
with the same name and overriding yours). If this is the case, then
you just need to file a support ticket with RubyForge to get that
