Subject Re: Installing on Ubuntu 10.10

Well, I can surely do that, but I merely wanted to point out that the 
docs are not as clear as it sounded in Alex' post.

So what IS the recommended way to install buildr? And should it not 
actually install buildr somewhere in PATH by default?

Is installing RubyGems from source indeed the recommended way, even 
though it might work with the Debian packages?

I am not an expert in these things, so I'd rather discuss the options 
first and find the best option how to install buildr and then submit a 
patch to the docs.
