Where, oh where has my gem server gone?

ERROR:  While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
    bad response Moved Permanently 301 (http://gems.rubyforge.org/latest_specs.4.8)


gem sources -a http://rubygems.org/
gem sources -r http://gems.rubyforge.org/

Looks like they weren’t kidding when they said to switch from rubyforge to rubygems.org (née gemcutter)!

[Edited to change “http://production.s3.rubygems.org/” to “http://rubygems.org/”. Note that the trailing slash is significant!]
