How to install latest rubygems version? (from master branch)

I have been looking on how to use the latest rubygems because I think I'm hitting a bug, but I would like to try the latest changes to make sure it's already fixed.

I tried running ruby setup.rb from master branch, but it still installs latest stable (2.2.2 at the moment of writing this). I have been searching through the docs and inline help, but I still can't get anything :(

Any help would be appreciated.

    The version number in master is not updated until release time to allow an install from trunk to be upgraded to the latest release.

    When you run ruby setup.rb you install from master.

    The best way to test with master is to run ruby -Ilib bin/gem … instead of running ruby setup.rb
