I wish to bundle the edge version of nokogiri, but the repository lacks a gemspec file. This prevents Gem Bundler from building a fresh gem from the repository.

Aaron builds "nightlies", gems built from edge, that you can bundle by specifying "http://tenderlovemaking.com" as the gem source.

Does that satisfy your need?

@postmodern

Ah ha, that does work. Thank you.

I've commented on the source about this specific problem: tenderlove/nokogiri@7f17a64#commitcomment-667477 and I think that if not publishing .gemspec on github repository, at least document it on README file, as it takes a lot of time to figure out this address to get the necessary instructions.

@tenderlove are you still building nightlies? I thought you had stopped ...

@benlangfeld

I think this issue should be addressed again. I will gladly submit a pull request to make the necessary changes to resolve the lack of a gemspec in the repo, if there's a chance it will be merged.

Howdy! Thanks for bringing this up. I've written a blog post in response!
