Dear RubyGems Team,

I'm working on the StanfordCoreNLP gem and would like to package all the dependecies (mostly jars) in form of several fat binary gems. The maximum size could be aprox. 400 Mb.
My question: Is there any infrastructural limit for the Gems size?

Thank you in advance!

    Sorry for the slow response. We definitely don't recommend that because 400mb is a lot for clients to download, but it should work. I believe 500mb is the hard limit currently.
