RubyGems Index Slow to Update


#1

I uploaded a gem about five hours ago and I’m still not seeing it in
queries? About how long should it take the server to pick it up?

I think the mirrors are updated every 30 minutes; though there may be a
“push on update” process in place.

Some new mirrors have have come online recently( and 30-Second Rule
should have its mirror set up in a day or so, I hope), so perhaps there
is an issue with the mirroring process, and you’re fetching from an
out-of-date server.

Have you tried explicitly setting the gem server path to rubyforge.org?

Should be about an hour or so… unless you’re hitting that Ruby 1.8.3 +
RubyGems problem…

Yup, we’re hoping to get to that soon… just need to get everyone
pulling gems/files from Dennis’ mirror server…

couldn’t a coverter be made so you guys could trigger a

ruby183 foo.gem | ruby182 > foo.gem

to convert? only if this would be simple, but i bet someone on the list
would
write the converter for you.

Thank you. I was not aware of this issue.

For those following along, this does NOT appear to be fixed in Ruby
1.8.4 Preview 1.

That would certainly work for me…
