I've read several blogs & threads about running gem mirror
following by generate_index but even after provisioning a 16GB VM
with huge swap & waiting 2 days I still cannot get
generate_index to complete successfully on the entire rubygems
mirror. Is possible that I could become a mirror partner with
rsync? Do you have the gems & indices built with some private
rsync mechanism as I've seen hinted at that I could become a
partner of? I need to provide a mirror to offline networks &
this is really painful.
Things like CPAN, pypy, nodejs, cywin, etc have convenient
functional mirror capabilities & the best one to date is
definitely rsync. It would be great if we could use rsync or get
guidance on how the hell to actually build the index for these

Agreed. Check out this thread:
We really just need people who are excited and passionate about
making sure mirroring works to help make it work and stick around
