RubyGems.org News

Our big news this month is our plan to enforce multi-factor authentication for gems with more than 180 million downloads. We’ll continue to monitor as enforcement is rolled out, and make adjustments as needed.

In July, RubyGems.org saw several bug fixes and updates, some of which include the following:

  • added an mfa_required function to check when a user needs to enable MFA due to one of the packages they own passing the MFA-required downloads threshold - #3135.
  • merged a PR to reorganize locales by running bill/fill-locales - #3134.
  • updated the TargetRubyVersion for Rubocop - #3139.
  • added an update to skip sending email when a user has no email address present - #3150.
  • fixed webhooks for users with multiple API keys - #3151.

This month, RubyGems.org gained 74 new commits, contributed by 13 authors. There were 1,015 additions and 263 deletions across 63 files.

As always, we continue to fix bugs, review and merge PRs and reply to support tickets.
