I would like to install The Ruby Engines plugin. So, I followed the directions at: http://www.rails-engines.org/download When I run script/plugin discover, I get the following: Add http://svn.northpub.com/plugins/? [Y/n] (eval):3:in `each': undefined method `' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError) from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:6 58:in `scrape' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:6 32:in `parse!' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:6 31:in `parse!' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:4 47:in `parse!' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:4 63:in `parse!' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.1.2/lib/commands/plugin.rb:8 71 from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `re quire' from c:/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-1.3.1/lib/active_suppo rt/dependencies.rb:147:in `require' from script/plugin:3 Am I missing something obvious? Does someone know how to get around this? I am running on Windows XP, wiht Subversion installed, with Ruby 1.8.4 and Rails 1.1.2. Thanks in advance, Scott Taylor

Someone appears to have put some junk on the wiki page that script/plugin uses. You can install from the direct URL anyway: script/plugin install http://svn.rails-engines.org/plugins/engines - james

The bottom of the WIKI http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Plugins has a link 'Edit' that is defined as: <a href="/rails/pages/plugins/versions/new">Edit</a> The method scrape at line 654 of file ...\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems\rails-1.1.6\lib\commands\plugin.rb detects this and passes "/rails/pages/plugins/versions/new" to the method below: def extract_repository_uri(uri) uri.match(/(svn|https?):.*\/plugins\//i) end But "/rails/pages/plugins/versions/new" does not start with svn or http, so there is no match and  has only nil to work with. Changing line 659 to the following line factors in the http part and eliminates the problem. if line =~ /<a[^>]*href=['"](https?[^'"]*)['"]/ or line =~ /(svn:\/\/[^<|\n]*)/ Of course the href gets expanded by a browser to http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/plugins/versions/new, but in this case we would the wiki problems by trying to edit the page. The fix above seems to be a better solution to me.
