I assume you mean lock down so that the gem cleanup command won't remove
There is no direct way to do this in RubyGems. However, you could
create a gem of your own that installed no software but did depened on
the versions of the software you needed. It is pretty trivial to create
gems, so this is not hard. As long as your "lock down" gem is
installed, the cleanup command won't remove the referenced gem versions.
