Hi everybody,

I would like to known how you manage your gem (ruby) or easyinstall
(python). Do you use ports ? or directly gems or easyinstall ? or both ? 

For exemple when you want install some software with lots of dependances
you can use (if the software use easy_install) just one easy_install and
everything is installed, you can use ports for some packages but sometime
not every packages are in the ports so you should need to installed it
through easy_install. 

After that same question about updating....

So what you do ? And why ?
