We need to wire up the version specification feature in gem mirroring, so that we can ensure that specific versions of gems are installed:

  • security issues require a minimum version
  • API compatibility issues require a specific maximum / exact version

@daniel-pittman daniel-pittman Allow reading gem list from a file during mirroring
This extends the gem mirroring script to support reading from a file, as well
as the command line, to find out which set of gems to mirror.

This allows an extended input format in the file, where we specify version
constraints, which resolves #59, a need to specify version constraints.
Now we have a clean mechanism for specifying them.
