Broken 2.0.2 gems

Hi all,

As many have noticed by now, "gem install rails" can't install Rails
2.0.2. There's a ticket with a potential fix that would be great to
get some core feedback on.

Thanks,
Tim

In the meantime, this seems to work:

gem install rails --source http://gems.rubyonrails.org

Notice the missing platform.

$ sudo gem update rails --source http://gems.rubyonrails.org

The method that Josh described worked for me too. Sometimes gems take
a while to propagate

Updating gem with 'gem update --system' solved the problem for me.
