Please provide details from which platform/ruby/environment you

Please check with gem spec --local pkg/my-gem.gem
instead of pushing the gem expecting it to work.
gem spec --local pkg/my-gem.gem
All the gem information is serialized in YAML, if for some
reason your Ruby installation has problems with that, will be great
