September 2018 RubyGems Updates
by Stephanie Morillo
Welcome to the RubyGems monthly update! As part of our efforts at Ruby Together, we publish a recap of the work that we’ve done the previous month. Read on to find out what updates were made to RubyGems and RubyGems.org in September.
This month, we updated seven dependencies on rubygems.org and simplified and sped up some rack-attack integration tests with the help of @mjankowski. We also discovered that it was possible to create “hidden” gems that would not show up in gem lists, and @kerrizor implemented a fix. Overall, rubygems.org got 15 commits from 2 authors making 146 additions and 263 deletions across 8 files.
This month, RubyGems merged 12 pull requests, including downloading multiple gems in parallel during install, setting up a new mergebot, and adding a
--resign flag to the cert command. There were 26 new commits, contributed by 6 authors, with 251 additions and 163 deletions across 28 files.
