These have been moved on to the FAQ.


Gemcutter has a ‘commit-bit’ policy, much like the Rubinius project. Submit a patch that is accepted, and you’ll get full commit access to the project. Please check the wiki for more information.

If you’re looking for things to hack on, please check GitHub Issues. If you’ve found bugs or have feature ideas don’t be afraid to pipe up and ask the mailing list about them.


Make sure you run rake gemcutter:index:create before running the test suite, otherwise it might complain. Better solutions to this are more than welcome.
