My gem doesn't work

By means of RailsCast and others sources I've made a plugin ho allows the management of i18n with a graphic interface. I tried to create a gem with this plugin and I published it on Rubygems but it doesn't work and I don't know why.

Here is the arborescence of the plugin:

-- app
---- controllers
------ translations_controller.rb
---- helpers
---- models
---- views
------ translations
-------- index.html.erb
-- config
---- routes.rb
-- lib
---- i18n_gui.rb
-- pkg
---- I18nGUI-0.0.1.gem
-- test
---- i18n_gui_test.rb
---- test_helper.rb
-- init.rb
-- install.rb
-- Rakefile
-- uninstall.rb

And here is the content of the Rakefile:

require 'rake'
require 'rake/testtask'
require 'rake/rdoctask'
require 'rake/gempackagetask'

desc 'Default: run unit tests.'
task :default => :test

desc 'Test the i18n_gui plugin.' do |t|
  t.libs << 'lib'
  t.libs << 'test'
  t.pattern = 'test/**/*_test.rb'
  t.verbose = true

desc 'Generate documentation for the i18n_gui plugin.' do |rdoc|
  rdoc.rdoc_dir = 'rdoc'
  rdoc.title    = 'I18nGui'
  rdoc.options << '--line-numbers' << '--inline-source'

spec = do |s| = "I18nGui"
s.version = "0.0.1" = "Louis Wrobel"
s.platform = Gem::Platform::RUBY
s.summary = "Graphic interface for i18n"
s.files = FileList['[a-zA-Z]*', 'lib/**/*', 'app/**/*', 'config/**/*', 'test/**/*'].to_a
s.require_path = 'lib'
s.has_rdoc = false

desc 'Turn this plugin into a gem.' do |pkg|
  pkg.gem_spec = spec

My mistake is certainly stupid but I'm still too novice to realize it

Thanks in advance

    Hi there,

    If you could provide a link to a github repo or something that would help! No idea what your error is and you've provided no error/stack traces. Also, you might find stackoverflow or ruby-talk mailing list a little more responsive than us.
