Capgem is an extension to Capistrano which adds a pack task to
you can package up your Rails application as a Gem. This is useful if
are in an environment where Capistrano’s remote deployment tools aren’t

via mongrel even if it is in the Ruby gems directory. You can just type
start-myapp or sudo stop-myapp from anywhere on the system to launch

Feedback is welcome.
