It occurred to me that the way I was finding Gems was by making notes  
of what I saw coming across this list and various other disorganized  
ways. That didn't seem too bright and searching RubyForge didn't  
always turn things up as I expected. So, having a dull hour or two, I  
cobble a browser together.

Obviously, this is a really crude attempt and I'm just looking for  
comments regarding whether it's useful:

It's only running on one mongrel and I've done little to optimize it.  
The searching is performed using ferret. Comments welcome on this as  
well.

Currently searchable fields are gem name, author, and description. If  
this seems like a bright idea, I'll probably add user annotations and  
tags for starters and make them searchable as well.

Thanks in advance for your comments.
