New source path for ruby gems

If you would had chance to view any ruby news in recent days , you would have come to know that github is no more going to host gems any-more. Ofcourse github will continue to host current gems (if I am not wrong that too for an year only)

Ok. No worries. From now onwards gemcutter is going to host ruby gems. so we all would need to update our ruby gem source path. commands to do so are as follows:

sudo gem update –system
sudo gem install gemcutter
gem tumble

This will add gemcutter as your primary RubyGem source. I think in near future all gems will be available at gemcutter, not rubyforge or github.
Follow above mentioned steps, to make sure you install proper version of gem.
