I was doing some investigation on gem repositories and I discovered
something on the gems.rubyforge.org repository.
It appears that any gem that is not a Gem::Platform::RUBY has different
platform values between the Marshal.4.8 file and the specs.4.8 file.
For instance in the hpricot gem:
Marshal non-RUBY gems
Specs non-RUBY gems
The fun part here is that the none of the Marshal named gems exist at the
source_uri/gems/full_name.gem path, only those that are in Specs exist
Is this the correct behavior? Is the Marshal.4.8.Z file to not be used
to determine the path to gems? Should I only access the specs.4.8 and
Here's the sample program I was using:
