Hello, Ruby beginner here trying to learn as much as I can.

Does `gem list` use the GEM_PATH to find the actual install folders or
does it just look for the .gemspec files?

I've noticed if I delete a gem's install folder manually and run `gem
list`, it will still show up in the list, but trying to use the gem in
anyway (including `gem uninstall`) returns an error until I delete the
associated .gemspec file as well.  After that, the gem will no longer
show up in `gem list`.

Thanks in advance for any clarification.
