Speedy Gem Indexing

As of RubyGems 1.3.2, the index generation code supports incremental index updates. What this means is instead of taking minutes rebuild all of the indexes for GitHub’s thousands of gems, it takes just seconds to index the new gems.

So, your gem should show up in our index within 1-2 minutes now, assuming it builds correctly and our job queue isn’t backed up. We also have dropped support for legacy indexes, so anyone using a version of RubyGems prior to the 1.2.0 release needs to upgrade.
