Hello List!

I'm glad to announce the update of Rails Plugin Fossilize (0.3.0):

Fossilize
=========

Allow you distribute your rails application as a Gem.
It add a "fossilize" generator and a package task to rake.

What it offer
=============

Fossilize offer you two ways of using your distributable rails
application:
  * a 'unpack' method (by default):
    This clone Gem contents into a user especified folder.
  * As INSTANCE:
    Create a minimun folder structure for the user to configurate that
unique instance
    and allow you hook RAILS_ROOT/RAILS_INSTANCE to provide personalized
functionality from this.

To start using it
=================

  * First, must install the plugin (ruby script\plugin install) ;-)
    ./script/plugin source
http://opensvn.csie.org/mmediasys/trunk/rails/plugins/
    ./script/plugin install fossilize

  * Then use generate to create the default script and configuration for
your application

    Example:
    ./script/generate fossilize MyRailsApp

    This will:
      Create my_rails_app script (executable) under /bin.
      Add application.yml to /config directory

    Please edit the later with your own information (version, package
name, author, etc.)

  * When you're done, use rake package to generate the gem of your
application

  * The end user could execute 'my_rails_app' like 'rails' command.

It is compatible with Rails installed as gem or in vendor/rails (it will
also be packaged and distributed into the gem).

Because the copy process is generator-based, local modified files will
show collisions and ask the user for action.

Regards, and remember: feedback are welcome!
