Gemfile.lock -- when is it appropriate to delete

I just moved a project to a different workstation, and found that I
couldn’t bundle install because “devise v- 1.4.0 couldn’t be found
anywhere”. Deleting the Gemfile.lock made bundler find everything – and
newer versions in some cases. This strikes me as a very big gun, and I
did it knowing I have git and the version on my other computer to work
with, and I just want to get some stuff done.

What’s a better practice?



fix versions inside Gemfile then
