In the near future, would it be possible to use the API to find all gems for a specific username or email address. We're implementing a community app where this would be highly useful.

    Why not grab the full Marshal index and ask it?

    Fetch, which is a deflated, Marshaled Gem::SourceIndex.

    I've been nervous to expose emails via the API even though they may be in the gemspec. I think we're almost at the point where we can show usernames, and I would love to have profiles as well. The main problem is that we started without usernames, so many users don't have them.

    If you're interested in working on this feature hop into #gemcutter on Freenode and we'll talk about it.

    Is there still effort in this department?

    could a /profiles/username.json

    Not really. Let's move feature requests to the issue tracker on github. I'm going to try to remove that category from Tender.
