something changed in our Fedora build servers mock environment and the last test that use www.ruby-lang.org address started failing. I have fixed that. Now everything works only locally except the windows WMI test (which I did not change).
Btw net-ping appeared in Fedora 15. I hope we will fix that and it hits F16 :-)
external ping test now also use localhost
Ok, merged. Also, I've added you as a collaborator on the project. Hope that's ok. :)
