Hi, I sent this query over to the Rails list, but no joy there.

In general, how do you apply a patch to an installed gem? Do you have
to get the gem src and rebuild the gem, then reinstall? Or, since it
is just ruby code, can you apply it in place in the gem's library
folder.

I am specifically talking about the patch Ticket #2245:
as_clean_logger_rb-fixed.patch.
which fixes the Rails 0.13/Ruby 1.8.3 Logger problem.

Thanks
Ed
