Update gemspec

Hello all,
I recently created and pushed a gem (for the .net platform) and unfortunately put my name under author, not knowing this refers to the gem author, rather than the gemspec author / gem owner (the gem was written by someone else).

Is there a way to update the gemspec and re-push the gem with the right info or manually do that?

    Nope, there's no way to update the author without changing the gemspec, and pushing a new gem. The best thing you can do is run gem spec on the built gem before you push it and check it out. If you messed up, gem yank the gem then push a fixed one. You're not going to run out of version numbers :)
