I would like to work on the latest rails version from github. I have pulled it and set my $GEM_PATH to where I pulled it : /home/joshua/rails/
But when I worked on it, gem barfed out and did not recognize it. But when I typed: gem environment, it displayed /home/joshua/rails/ as my $GEM_PATH
Can anyone that has worked with bleeding edge version tell me what is the proper way to do this?
Thank you very much for your assistance.
