Hmm.  My fault for missing some deps.  This works on my test system, but I realized I had built some additional packages in preparation for Sinatra stuff. I have requested the packages for rubygem-minitest and rubygem-gemcutter.  rubygem-rubyforge is already available in EPEL. I will keep you posted on status.

Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2010-05-05 15:53:56 UTC
Michael, your fault is dragging in a new major version of package (apart from dragging in a ton of new dependencies).

Please do not do this sort of thing in EPEL, push bugfixes only and leave this for fedora.

Thank you for quick reaction though.

Comment 3 Michael Stahnke 2010-05-05 19:11:24 UTC
Putting in new version is not a problem in EPEL, if you maintain compatibility. 

Somehow, I just missed these two deps and am still figuring that part out.  (That system has been re-imaged since then.)   Normally I start with maintaining these packages for my day job and then move them to EPEL once I've been using them a while.  In this case, there is obviously some variable I missed on my work systems vs. a raw EPEL repo.  I am trying to fix it and have requested branches for minitest and gemcutter.

rubygem-hoe now installs fine, closing off this bug
