You can clone with
HTTPS or Subversion.
Please add in README that 'gem mirror' will need more than 50GB on harddrive!
I ran it on my production server.
It used my all disk space, which crashed my database server!
Anyway, thanks for this "gem" :-)
It will mirror the entire collection of gems, latest and previous versions, so is understandable it will use a lot. Running rubygems.org is not cheap
Perhaps you want to mirror only the gems you use instead. Probably take a look to stickler:
I am a new rubyist so exploring/playing a lot.
Its hard to be sure which gems I will need at this stage!
I decided to mirror because I was not getting gems installed from rubygems.org (it seems there server was overloaded from last 2 days!)
Instead, can we do... gem mirror latest so that old gems version will NOT be mirrored!
gem mirror latest
Off-topic - why not community has rubygems.org mirror ? Hosting companies can provide sponsorship I guess....
