If you're planning to build gems from your engines, it may be worthwhile to start with the latest from 3-1-stable instead of RC5. The generated gemspec file is now much more complete, including details such as author, email and homepage. Also, it now contains dependencies which are included in the Gemfile via the gemspec command (similar to the "bundle gem" approach).
