Related to sow ...

Mr Bones allows you to define your own project skeleton that will be  
instantiated when you type in "bones new_project_name". You can fill  
in your own personal data (author, e-mail, etc.) or your own support  
files common to all your projects.

Related to newgem ...

Mr Bones places all the rake tasks into a "tasks" folder. You are free  
to add your own tasks, but all the configuration can be done in the  
top-level Rakefile. If you do add your own tasks, those would be prime  
candidates to include in your custom project skeleton.

Take a gander at the Mr Bones documentation ...

Or just install Mr Bones and try it out ...

sudo gem install bones
