It looks like the gem is created as part of the build, but it is not pushed to
rubygems.  http://www.apache.org/dist/avro/avro-1.5.4/ruby/

I sent an email jmhodges who is the owner of avro on rubygems asking if he was
going to keep it up to date with releases from apache. Unfortunately I have yet
to hear back. 

If anyone can get a hold of Jeff Hodges and have him coordinate with the avro
release team that would be most helpful.
