Yeah, we have an open bug where you cannot yank platform gems. For now I've yanked those other two versions.
We usually only perma-delete gems that have some malicious or harmful code in them, or something like a password. If every version of a gem has been yanked, then someone else can claim ownership over the gem if they want that name. Let me know if there's a stronger reason to delete it.
I am very sorry! But that was not exactly what I needed! Aaaaaaaaaa!!!
I needed to delete only those that I have already yanked. The "cubrid" gem is working. Just wanted to delete the "testing" gems, which I pushed just to see if that works out.
The rest two gems:
0.61 July 27, 2010 x86-mingw32
0.6 July 11, 2009 x86-mswin32-60
... do not needed to be removed. They are stable releases for Windows platforms. Is it possible for you to restore my account and just delete those gems which I have already yanked? I think it is possible. Please, help me with this. I would be very happy if, especially, the downloads statistics could be restored.
Concerning the perma-delete, I understand that there should be "virus-like" reason to have them deleted. So, I have a question. How should I push the gem which has the same version as the one which was previously yanked. As I told you that I have been testing the pushing, installing, and yanking with the Gem, so those gems are not actually the latest and stable. I have incremented the versions for the same gem to see how it works (I assumed I can easily remove them later, but I was wrong). So, now I really have +0.01 increment in the version that I want to push. How should I do that? Do I have to intentionally increment by the latest +0.01? Is that the only option to get it pushed?
Yeah, you can increment by whatever version you want to.... you could do 0.01, most Ruby projects use a version scheme of MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH, so I would just bump the PATCH (for example, 1.0.0 => 1.0.1)
I understand that there is an option to just increment the version. However, that's not exactly what I intend. Could you simply remove those unnecessary "yanked" gems? That's all I want, as I explained to you earlier, I have pushed them to test the "pushing, yanking and installation" process. They are useless and even will not be installed. Only two gem, which are not yanked, are working.
