@etehtsea I'm confused then. rubygems/rubygems#1685 was merged August 17, 2.6.8 was released since then,, and I see rubygems/rubygems@d98f036 on master. But the version in 2.6.8 does not appear to have your change. I'm rather confused. Can you clarify why this fix is not in the release, @segiddins?
FWIW, this is largely a cosmetic fix, so if we have to apply a manual patch to get it perhaps we just don't bother for now.
