That is odd, since it should use the one in vendor/grit/ and not the gem.

if you run "script/create_wikis create_repos", run the created tasks
and then "script/create_wikis load_readmes" it'll create the wiki
repositories for each project you have and load up something that
looks like a readme (if found) in the mainline repo as the Home wiki

Gitorious.org runs HEAD, or at most a few commits behind.

Up until recently gitorious' sole aim was to work for gitorious.org
and local installs for those brave enough. But I see a bigger need now
for something more easily installable and a part of that is probably
traditional releases.

Not much much beyond
http://gitorious.org/projects/gitorious/pages/Todo for the near
future. I see gitorious as a fairly fluid project where features enter
based on need and good ideas.
I don't like putting down long-long term roadmaps into writing as that
tend to set it in stone, even if it turns out to be a bad idea when
the time comes around. However, the overall goal of gitorious is to
make it easier to collaborate on a project and there's plenty left to
do in that department.
