Would you build a server testing CI to test rubygems.org against older rubygems release versions as well as master? Will you grab the current pull requests and give us a report of ruby versions and major interpreters and platforms in an easy to understand matrix of output showing where it causes failures? Will you then test that against chef and bundler too, to ensure it doesn't break those? And finally what about against plugins, geminstaller, isolate, gem2rpm, etc?

That would be awesome Chad thank you, I know you've run CI for us in the past too, and that was a great help at various times (IMO). Thank you for stepping up, if I can help with specifics at any time, please feel free to get in contact.
