With our use of ruby-debug for a fast backend debugging and the prevalance of gems in general, I think it'd be wise for us to create a new view that allows users to organize, view, install, and remove gems - with hooks for us to prompt the user to install a particular set of gems (so we can install rails, or ruby-debug for them).
Is anyone interested in trying out a first version? Does Netbeans have an implementation we could look to for ideas?
This is on my list, but it may be a little while before I could take a crack at it right now - so this is my call for help. ;)
