Rubygems issues

Running "bundle install" has just started giving me 503 errors from

$ bundle install Fetching source index for
/usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.3-p0/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/remote_fetcher.rb:215:in `fetch_http': bad response Service Unavailable 503 ( (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)

I've seen it failing on different gems: packet-0.1.7, mechanize-1.0.0, jbuilder-0.3.gemspec.rz

Anybody else?

    It happens for some of my newly pushed gems, too. But some other gems like rails-3.2.0 do work.

    Thanks for giving a hint. Adding git source or specifying lower version of gem allowed me to run bundle without problems. But I wouldn't say it's a problem of newly pushed gems, because also gems that were pushed a while ago also cannot be fetched. E.g. gem pg, rb-fsevent, and more.

    It seems down at the moment to me .. :

    sudo gem install vagrant --version 0.8.10
    ERROR: does not appear to be a repository
    ERROR:  Could not find a valid gem 'vagrant' (= 0.8.10) in any repository
