I pushed a new release of my gem(dia), and when I tried to fetch it(about 5 minutes afterwards) I ended up downloading a pre release that was released before i pushed my new release.
I didn't specify --pre.

    For what its worth, pushing to GemCutter again and trying to install afterwards seemed to fix the problem.

    Hmm, I'm not sure what's up here. There really shouldn't be a delay with the prerelease index. What version of RubyGems are you on?

    Still not sure what's up with this...have you seen it since? Going to leave this open until we can figure it out.

    Going to consider this fixed, I haven't seen or heard anything like this since. If you see it again, open this back up!
