Please check in a gemspec so we can use johnson with bundler :git. Thanks

Nope, we don't do that: Checking in a gemspec is a promise to keep it up-to-date constantly. We're happy to do more frequent prereleases or patch releases if people ask for them, though.

Ok. The use case for this was my app was blowing up with johnson (crazy C error) and I wanted to check it with the unstable branch before logging a bug on it.

gem "johnson", :git => "http://github.com/jbarnette/johnson.git", :branch => "unstable"

If you want to check with the unstable branch, then just check out the repository and use bundler's :path option:

gem "johnson", :path => "/my/local/clone/of/johnson"
