We maintain a forked git repo for our RubyGems patches. Everything is
handled as branches that correspond to the main RubyGems' repo's tags,
e.g. the v1.8.24 tag/release led to the following branch in JRuby's


All the changes should be diffable and blameable for easy investigation.

We are debating just removing the maven support, since it has never
really worked quite right.
