Hosting gems outside of Rubyforge means that I don't get to type 'gem
update' and have the latest version of solrb installed. So I'm at a
loss as to why "the Apache way" should mean more complicated systems
maintenance for me. I mean, I don't go to and download,
compile, and install a src tarball every time there's an update to the
HTTP server -- I type 'apt-get upgrade'.

If it were complicated to add gems to Rubyforge, I could understand,
but it's the work of a few minutes every release.
