Local copy of rubyforge

Hello All,

 Is there a way that I can maintain a local copy of all gems, from 

let’s say rubyforge? (or any other repo for that matter). I’d like to
maintain a local repo for ruby gems in our network which doesn’t permit
for outside access. I figured I can have the one machine that has
external access, to sync up files daily during off hours. This is kind
of what I already do with Yum repos. My current gem version is 1.3.7.

 I understand that I can run my own gem server via 'gem server -d 

/dir’, and it’ll run on 8808. I’m just trying to figure out the process
of syncing up a local copy of all gems.

 Any ideas?

Thanks,

Henry

The next release of rubygems will not have a built-in gem mirror
command. Use https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems-mirror instead.
