That isn't a problem with separate releases. It is a problem with dual VCs. This is why I don't allow changes to minitest in ruby's repo and insist on patches being sent instead. If rubygems and rdoc did the same thing then we wouldn't have those problems. We'd still have problems, they'd just be easier to manage.
