    Sorry to hear. I'd say, never "bundle install" in the init script. If using docker, make "bundle install" an intermediate container. If you have your own servers, try network FS sharing your deps (and see if you're ok with the "require" latencies). Alternatively, use a gem cache proxy. You can use "geminabox" with a rubygems mirror, if you can tolerate the space and long mirroring times, or use a purposed "middleman" proxy, like gemstash, or nexus if your company is multilang.

    As such I think some sort of agreement along the lines of "please give me some time" could've worked. To further illustrate that, there's a similar issue for a different project, created on February 22nd. It wasn't until 2 days ago, one month after creating said issues, that a DMCA notice was filed. And based on the discussion, the only reason for this was the authors of zRedShift not cooperating.
