In the rakefile for savon 2 is a task task :require_ruby_18, which appears to no longer be required.
There is a comment above the task, pointing to http://stackoverflow.com/q/5771758/279024 which to me suggests that that was root cause for the Ruby 1.8 dependency. Inside that thread, there's a comment (which I can't seem to directly hyperlink),
"Had the same issue. It looks like a bug in rubygems. Here's the commit that fixed it: rubygems/rubygems@21cccd5"
Not sure 100%, but that seems to have done the trick?
yep, i think that can be removed. thanks for noticing.
fixed with fff6b7.
removed rubygems workaround. closes #341.
