Mirroring rubygems : generating index takes too long

Hello guys,

In my company I have to create a mirror of rubygems used by all developpers and so I decided to follow this [tutorial]

This is because some of the servers are not connected to the outside.

I use rubygems 1.3.7 due to compatibility reason with older projects.

When I ran gem generate_index it takes too long : I decided to stop the process after 10 hours running.

Is there a way to leverage this ?

Thanks for your replies.

    This one was buried in our spam filter, just unearthed it. Sorry.

    Please use rubygems-mirror for mirroring:
