I forget why but I'm stuck using rubygems 1.7.2, which means I
occasionally get the dreaded "invalid date format in specification"
What sets the date format?
For example. with rubygems-bundler
Invalid gemspec in [/usr/local/rvm/rubies/ree-1.8.7-2011.03/lib/ruby/
gems/1.8/specifications/rubygems-bundler-0.2.6.gemspec]: invalid date
format in specification: "2011-09-16 00:00:00.000000000Z"
If you look on github the date is 2011-09-16. no time information is
So what adds the 00:00:00.000000000Z? Is it part of the rubygems
This gem supports older versions of rubygems but once it is uploaded
to rubygems.org it will only work on 1.8.x :-\
Thanks for any pointers.
