Lluis, Raggi, and I have been keeping a decently close eye on these as I come in, so I wouldn't worry about managing pull requests unless you have a real excitement about a specific one.

The RubyForge repo is dead. rubygems/rubygems on GitHub is The Real Thing.

Nope, not at the moment.

Not that you need to care about for applying changes. For the moment, at least, the differences between RubyGems-the-product and RubyGems-the-feature-of-1.9 are resolved near release time for each. I'd like very much to change this in the future, but we have a mountain or three to climb before then.

At the moment the most useful would be master on GitHub and head from Ruby's Subversion, I'd think.

Now, luckily, they're searchable in the email archive. :)
