About publishing a gem

I am running wxruby on snow leopard (OSX 10.6.4). I searched for the appropriate gem, but could not find one. So, I built it from scratch. It is not perfect, because it is not universal (only x86) and based on ruby-1.8.7 (not 1.9). There are other things missing in the gem as well. Support for:
GraphicsBrush GraphicsContext GraphicsFont GraphicsMatrix GraphicsObject GraphicsPath GraphicsPen MediaCtrl MediaEvent

controls, because I don't need them and so my wxwidgets library is not compiled with these. But, I still think the gem might be useful for someone. I do not wanna go through the complete procedure of setting up the gemspec, etc, because of lack of time. If anyone wants they can install this gem for getting a ruby interface to wxwidgets. You also need to install ruby-1.8.7 (through recent macports) and wxwidgets-2.8.11_0 the stable wxwidgets version available again via macports. I have tested it and works on most things.

    Hi there,

    This probably isn't the best place for this. You could just push up the gem, or announce it on the ruby-talk mailing list. The gemspec isn't too hard to set up, if there's anything wrong with our docs let us know.
