we're running a local mirror from the dalli gem did update to 1.0.0 in end of November, but the gem mirror command does not fetch it. Is the index incomplete?

    any news on this? Or is there a workaround? Would be great, otherwise our mirror is worthless.

    Yeah, verified this:

    I'm actually seeing nothing in our production server's weekly cron logs either. I'll look into this with Tom. Sorry, generating the legacy index is really a pain in the ass.

    In the meantime I would suggest using the new gem mirror:

    Nick, sorry about that, I should have checked it earlier.

    Looking at the log, it seems like it ran Dec 13 but errored out:

    $ cat /var/www/rubycentral/
    rake aborted!
    undefined method `name' for nil:NilClass
    /var/www/rubycentral/ `to_spec'
    /var/www/rubycentral/ `method_missing'

    As you say, the legacy index continues to be a major pain...

    Just to give feedback here, we're using the and works flawlessly. We're not generating legacy indexes either.

    Maybe worth to put up as FAQ item and hint that legacy index is not supported. You also probably have better things to do than to baby sit the legacy gem index :-)

    Thanks for the help
