Subject Re: Bundled Buildr + JRuby distribution
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2009 22:59:29 GMT
Thanks, yes, I think I have solutions for both platforms now.   Just need to
start VirtualBox to test the Windows part (which I should have done the
first time around).

And I've now removed all other scripts (jirb, jrubyc, ...) so they don't
conflict with other JRuby installs.
