I started talking this one up yesterday - I've gotten as close to a
good problem statement as I can.

1) script/about:
Ruby version              1.9.1 (powerpc-darwin9.6.0)
RubyGems version          1.3.1
Rails version             2.3.0
Active Record version     2.3.0
Action Pack version       2.3.0
Active Resource version   2.3.0
Action Mailer version     2.3.0
Active Support version    2.3.0
Application root          /Users/rick/plugin-git
Environment               development
Database adapter          sqlite3
Database schema version   0

2) script/plugin install -v git://
Plugins will be installed using http
Plugin not found: ["git://"]
#<TypeError: can't convert Array into String>

I rattled around in lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/rails-2.3.0/lib/commands/
plugin.rb for awhile with the blunt tool of "puts thing.inspect" to
make sure I was getting to where I should.  (BTW when will the ruby-
debugger be available???)

I traced this through to the call to "install_using_git" and, by
replacing the variables with their string equivalents in the calls to
"Dir.chdir" and "system()" I was able to get the install to complete.

So why can't R(1.9.1)onR(2.3.0) "convert Array into String"?
