Lately, I am unable to install plugins for my rails projects.
$ script/plugin install # -->
Plugin not found:
$ script/plugin discover # -->
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:287:in `open_http': 403 Forbidden
from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/open-uri.rb:626:in `buffer_open'
As you can imagine, this has been quite frustrating. I set another
system ( a new install of Ubuntu Gutsy) and I get the same error. I
tested a new VPS install of (Gutsy) as well it had now problems
I live in Thailand, My VPS server is with Slicehost (in USA).
I believe that I have been blacklisted (notice the 403 Forbidden above)
and know of one site, www.railsforum.com (http://www.railsforum.com),
that used Spamhaus for their blacklist. When I contacted Spamhaus, I
found out that apparently the list of dynamic ip addresses I used are
mistakenly on the list. BTW. I am not a spammer. Only my ISP can get me
off this list. This is Thailand, and getting ISP to do something has not
been worked yet. I keep trying.
So, here are my questions:
Does the rails plugin servers use any type of blacklist?
If so, is there a way to fix this?
Thanks in advance.
