Rake Hates Me Today


#1

I’m trying to package up a new gem to release, but Rake and I just
can’t seem to get along today. In my Rakefile I have:

Rake::GemPackageTask.new(spec) do |pkg|
pkg.need_zip = true
pkg.need_tar = true
end

When I try to run that it does build the gem, but then complains with:


rake aborted!
no such option: noop

Commenting out the need_… calls removes the issue, but I really do
need the archives too.

Any tips?

Thanks.

This is caused by a changed in the FileUtils package the Rake uses.
There is
a beta version of Rake available that doesn’t have that problem. You
can get
the beta with:

gem install rake --source http://onestepback.org/betagems

Worked perfectly. Thank you Jim!

What’s the change that broke it? I suggested a change recently but
tried to ensure it was backwards compatible (a change to recursive
copy to allow the skipping of failures). This was post 1.8.3.

gem install rake --source http://onestepback.org/betagems

The FileUtils.cd command no long accepts a :noop option.
