Failing tests from Mechanize gem


#1

Chaps,

I’m using the Mechanize gem and it’s all good. However there are some
tests that fail within /lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/mechanize-0.9.2/test/.

Nothing too major at the mo, just stuff about radio buttons. In the
meantime if I where to get around debugging and squashing the failing
tests, to whom should I send them to?

*** LOCAL GEMS ***

You should send them to me. I am the maintainer. The only problem is
that currently all tests pass for me.

Make sure you’re using the latest checkout from github:

http://github.com/tenderlove/mechanize/tree/master

Also, make sure that you are running libxml2 2.7.3. I suspect you’re
running in to encoding problems with an older version of libxml2.
