For me it would be fine to just see the gemspecs, plus maybe
auxilliary ruby scripts or whatever you have in place. I don't
want to make you into a package maintainer, all of a sudden, with
one innocent question. :)

I'm not worried about that either. It's probably like Chris said.
I remember bad releases and times when it was not perfectly
maintained (which meant: scaled, when ruby was booming), but with 1.3+
things feel quite ok again, imho.
