      Description

      Puppet's embedded rubygems binary is currently 2.2.5, and the latest rubygems release is 2.5.2.

      This causes a problem for me while trying to install a gem dependency. In rubygems 2.2.x releases, there's a bug where pre-compiled gems are not properly fetched. This causes my node to fail in building the native extensions of the gem. Upgrading to rubygems 2.5.2 fixes the issue since the pre-compiled gem is properly fetched and the building of native extensions is skipped.

      Failed attempt to install gem dependency:
