Thanks for announcing releases here again!

I also noticed MRI trunk hasn’t had a rubygems update since 1.8.11.
Shouldn’t that stay in sync with RubyGems upstream?

Fwiw, I’m uncertain if having a copy of RubyGems in the MRI source tree
is a good thing, but since it is, having an up-to-date copy is probably
good. I am in support of keeping RubyGems distributed with MRI
tarballs, however.
