gem yank not working as expected

I'm trying to remove a botched release of 'sudden_motion_sensor' (wrong release date i gemspec, actually, nothing majour), but when I try to yank it with:

gem yank sudden_motion_sensor -v1.1.0

..I am told "The version 1.1.0 does not exist." even though it does. If I add the platform string:

gem yank sudden_motion_sensor -v1.1.0-universal-darwin

..I get "Illformed requirement ["1.1.0-universal-darwin"]".

Am I using the command wrong, or do I have the wrong syntax or is there something else I am missing?

    Hi there,

    Yeah, gem yank doesn't take platform gems into account yet, it's an open issue for us.

    In the meantime I can manually handle this for you...which version(s) would you like yanked?

    Thanks for the follow-up, understood. Don't worry about yanking it since it's just a small issue. I'll learn to be more careful in the future.

    Sounds good, considering this resolved for now then :)
