    why is it that a gem name has to be case sensitive? isn't that
    dangerous; ie i can submit gems w similar names differing only in
    cases?

    eg,

    [email protected]:~$ sudo gem install rubyinline
    ERROR: could not find rubyinline locally or in a repository

    [email protected]:~$ sudo gem install RubyInline
    Successfully installed rubyforge-0.4.5
    Successfully installed hoe-1.5.1
    Successfully installed RubyInline-3.6.7
    3 gems installed
    Installing ri documentation for rubyforge-0.4.5...
    Installing ri documentation for hoe-1.5.1...
    Installing ri documentation for RubyInline-3.6.7...

    kind regards -botp
