dm-more requires dm-tags (= 0.9.7, runtime)

Reported by ravinggenius | November 18th, 2008 @ 11:01 PM

Tonight when I did sudo gem update, dm-more complained that it needed dm-tags. So I did sudo gem install dm-tags. This installed dm-tags version 0.0.3. This is even the current version prominently displayed on the project homepage. As cool as this gem is, why does dm-more depend on it? Specifically why does it depend on a version that has even been released yet?

On a side-note, I read through the sample usage, and this looks awesome! How come it wasn't named dm-is-taggable though?

    • Assigned user changed from “Sam Smoot” to “Dan Kubb (dkubb)”
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    The reason for this problem is that someone else registered dm-tags on Rubyforge already, and you aren't able to release a same named gem, and there's really no way to know it's the same name until you actually attempt to install it via rubygems.

    However, we've been working with the former maintainer of dm-tags (Bobby Calderwood) to have it transfered over to us:


    As far as the name goes, I'm sure that dm-is-taggable would be a better name for a tagging plugin, but there are a few things that probably need to change in the API to match the "dm-is-example" format for a plugin.

    Also for something as important as a tagging plugin, I'd probably want a few DM devs to review the API before it was the "official" dm-is-taggable plugin.

    For now tho it's probably going to stay as dm-tags, unless you'd interested in taking on whatever changes need to be made to it?

    Putting this on hold while I wait for Tom from Rubyforge to reply to message in (linked to) thread.

    This is now resolved. Using gem install dm-tags should install 0.9.7 now. To confirm: gem list --remote dm-tags
