 n.— «The first problem I came to is that, stupid me for not knowing, activesupport bundles some gems (they coined the term “vendorizing” but it’s just bundling, and it’s just as well ); of these four (builder, i18n, memcache-client and tzinfo) one was already ported to the overlay as the second main testcase (tzinfo), one I knew about and had some trouble with it before (memcache-client: no tarball in releases, Subversion as SCM, no tags for versions!), one was in both tree and overlay (builder), and one I never heard about.» —“The depressing world of RoR” by Diego Elio Pettenò Flameeyes’s Weblog (Venice, Italy) May 25, 2009.
