I think we have a fix for this now; it's working with an ISP
in Singapore.  If you're having this problem, please send me
your IP address at tom@infoether.com.

Thanks,

Tom

I stop been able to login ever since I went to TPG :(
Had to login from work to maintain ssh keys. But no way for me
to do releases from home nowadays.

Is there a way around this problem?

Hm, so the problem is that RubyForge uses IP-based session tracking...
hm, maybe I can look at that code...

From Jeremy Thurgood:

I cannot login to rubyforge from behind Telkom's pool of transparent
proxies in South Africa. Every request is load
balanced between proxies and hence has a different source address,
so the IP-based session tracking logs me out.

Would it be possible to disable IP-based session tracking or
at least provide an exception for the pool of Telkom proxies?
For various other reasons, routing all of my http(s) traffic
through an external proxy is problematic.
