Depency on newest rubygems (1.3.6)

Reported by Skade | April 28th, 2010 @ 01:52 PM

The i18n gemspec requires rubygems 1.3.6. I cannot see the necessity for this.

Depending on 1.3.6 means that every other project using i18n (for example padrino) also has to depend on 1.3.6, which is a fairly recent release, prompting everyone to upgrade. Even JRuby, which usually ships with a relatively new gem package (1.3.5) has to be upgraded, not to speak of all the poor Ubuntu users ;).

If there is no hard reason for this, could this dependency be removed?

Thank you,
Florian Gilcher
