Hello. I have a few gems that are not on rubygems.org, mostly because there already exists a gem with the very same name. For instance: http://shevegen.square7.ch/configuration-1.0.19.gem Now, people can wget it, then install it, which works fine. But it is a bit of a hassle in that you need to do two commands. I think you can do "gem sources -a" to add more sources, but this is also a bit cumbersome. My question is - is there a way to install a remote gem with just a single gem-command instruction, if it is NOT on rubygems.org? It's ok if some extra switches are used for this gem install command but I am wondering if this functionality is available; and if not, whether it may be useful to have it. If so then I may file an issue request but I first have to find out whether it is possible or not. Thanks!
