Hi, I have a hoe managed gem (metrocot) you inherited from rubyforge. We have a new version and would like to share that with the community but gem push fails with...

"There was a problem saving your gem: Home does not appear to be a valid URL"

I also cannot update any of the URLs for this gem via rubygems where I get the same error message.

Seems like the metrocot home URL was set to something squirly in the past (not sure how but could well be my bad). But how do I fix that? Seems like keys are locked in the car -- I cannot fix the homepage URL until the homepage URL is fixed.

    Remove "(url)" from README.txt:

    $ head -3 README.txt 
    = metrocot
    * (url)
    [ 17:43 ehodel@YPCMC10014:~/tmp/metrocot-1.0.2 ]
    $ rake debug_gem | grep homepage {...} deprecated. Switch to Hoe.spec.
      s.homepage = %q{ (url)}
