validates_timeliness plugin installation

I'm trying to install the validates_timeliness plugin:

on Ubuntu lucid in my rails project directory:
sudo ./script/plugin install git://github.com/adzap/validates_timeliness.git
./script/plugin: command not found

on windows (as admin) in my rails project directory:
ruby script/plugin install git://github.com/adzap/validates_timeliness.git
creates the "validates_timeliness" directory, but it's empty...

What's wrong?

On ubuntu, try it without sudo. Check that the script/plugin file has
execute bit set. Run

  chmod u+x script/plugin

In any case it has nothing to do with the plugin. Have you installed
other plugins this way?

Try using the gem instead.

I've set script/plugin executable. It seems that plugins from github
can't be installed.

This works on ubuntu and similarly on windows:
./script/plugin install http://dev.rubyonrails.org/svn/rails/plugins/account_location/

works only on ubuntu:
./script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/actionflow

The gem works, however I'm happier with plugins because other
developers of this project get it by svn update

"not working" means there's nothing happening:

user@ubuntu:~/project/src$ ./script/plugin install
http://github.com/adzap/validates_timeliness.git
user@ubuntu:~/project/src$

the same with
./script/plugin install git://github.com/adzap/validates_timeliness.git

You need to install a Git client so the plugin installation script can
talk to the respository. I believe the Ubuntu package you want is
git-core.

Best,

thanks!
