Does creating a new release automatically enable “gem install xyz”, or
is there an additional step?

There are some notes on the mirroring process here:

http://rubyforge.org/docman/view.php/5/231/mirror_setup.html

To summarize - there’s an hourly (oops, I need to update that frequency
in the document) cronjob that checks for new gems, adds them to the gem
index, and triggers an rsync out to all the mirrors.

Yours,

Tom

Hi,

simply provide a .gem in the release, and it will be available a bit
later via “gem install …”. No additional step.

Cheers,

Just to verify all this, I was able to install my gem over the
innerwebz just moments ago. That’s all kinds of nifty. Now I just have
to make sure it works. :wink:
