According to the section in the guides that talks about test_files gemspec attribute, test_files is a collection of unit test file which will be loaded as unit tests when the user requests a gem to be unit tested. How does the user request a gem to be unit tested ? Looks like --test option was removed from the gem command. So how is this test_files gemspec attribute useful currently ?

I removed them since they're no longer useful or recommended to set. This will be updated with the next release of RubyGems.

Perl still runs tests by default when installing cpan modules.. for some reason that never took off in the rubygems world.
