I created two rails engines. In one of them 'bundle install' generated only a vendor/cache directory. In the other one, 'bundle install' created both vendor/cache and vendor/bundle. The vendor/bundle directory is causing me some problems. I do not remember what I did differently when creating the two engines. What causes 'bundle install' to create the vendor/bundle directory and how do I avoid this? Thanks in advance.

Found the solution. This explanation may not be 100% accurate. Bundle remembers how it was first executed in the directory '.bundle'. Subsequent executions use this information. 'bundle install' puts the gems in the vendor/bundle directory. 'bundle package' puts the gems in the vendor/cache directory. Apparently in the first engine I ran 'bundle package' first and in the second I ran 'bundle install' first. To fix the problem, I deleted the vendor/bundle, vendor/cache, and .bundle directories and then ran 'bundle package', recreating the vendor/cache directory but not the vendor/bundle directory.
