Thanks @laserlemon
What will this do for us? I only ask because the fact that 1.0 is still not out and is on rails 2 has been hanging over my head for a very long time. So I wonder if I (and others) will see this and say "yeah! let's get things going on the latest!" or if people will look and say "pfff! ignore that project, they aren't using the latest"

So if this is on Rails 2 for another month or 2 while we hammer out rails 3 support, will it be a constant motivator, or a constant deterrant?

I consider it a motivator, in the same way that a broken Travis CI status image would encourage you to fix the build. Then again, it all depends on your reaction to it. I'd consider even adding a qualifier for the red status and a call to action in the README to help with the upgrade.

We have a big stop light in the @collectiveidea office that nags at us when the build is broken on any of our projects and it's a huge motivator.

At any rate, I hope it helps!

@laserlemon when we start towards rails 3 support i'd like to have this but in the meantime all it's showing us is the status of one dependency that hardly matters (sqlite) and another that we're all painfully aware is out of date.

Thank you! Really.

I think it will help, but I'm going to sit on it until we've at least merged Rails 3 stuff into master. THEN, i think, it will motivate. Right now I'm stressed about getting the last Rails 2 version out so that upgrades and installs are as smooth as possible.

this did surface a couple of extensions with out of date dependencies. @saturnflyer any objections to adding the badge to the few core extensions with external dependencies? it'd also be nice to add when we get around to updating the extension generator so your default readme would have the travis badge and the gemnasium badge.

@laserlemon i marked this with the 2.0 label so we won't lose it in the shuffle. thanks for cool service!

There was talk on the mailing list recently about merging rails3 stuff into master (in hopes that a broken master branch would encourage more rails3 work to get done); maybe it's time to rethink this badge as well?
