Hi, I was just troubleshooting a dependencies problem and someone
mentioned your site had a way to look up reverse dependencies.
I used gem dependency <gem-name> --reverse-dependencies and actually figured out the problem, but apparently this requires the gem(s) in question be already installed in order to work. So, I thought I'd see explore how the "other way" worked.
Turns out that your site will only look up reverse dependencies for the latest version of a gem.
For example, in my case it was mysql2, version 0.3 was fighting with version 0.5.3.
I can look up reverse dependencies for 0.5.3 by going to https://rubygems.org
and searching for "mysql2" and clicking through to its details
I can then look for reverse dependencies by clicking "Reverse dependencies" on the right side, under "Links".
This shows me the dependencies for 0.5.3. (So far, so good.)
It looks to me that not passing the version in the search is a missing part of the feature.
