Hello. Over the past couple days I've been creating a ruby and rails environment on my Mac, but have been stymied by frequent download errors caused by what looks like problems at Without enabling verbose output or debugging one would misdiagnose these issues as stalls. Others seem to have similar problems, so I don't think the issues are local to me.

Just sayin'.

Thanks much.

    I've also been experiencing the same problems with (and therefore as a source), I have no problems with though but that is using s3 and not cloudfront. If I helps any the system I am running this on is a vm under openstack with a nat for internet. It does not seem to be a single cloudfront ip that is the problem as one that works for a request (repeated wget on the gem file until it works) would not work for a subsequent request.

    We have the same issue with

    It takes ages to download the specs file from there. Speed usually crawls around 2-3 KBps, and frequently simple cuts out, causing gem install --verbose to throw "connection reset after 1 requests, retrying".

    I thought this might be due to the undersea cable sabotage near Africa. Can we temporarily have those contents mirroed on a CDN?
