Problems with tests
The first time you run the test suite you get two errors: 1) Failure: test_operations(TC_AWSAuthConnectionTest) [s3-test.rb:196:in `verify_list_bucket_response' s3-test.rb:213:in `do_delimited_list' s3-test.rb:62:in `test_operations' s3-test.rb:35:in `each' s3-test.rb:35:in `test_operations']: bucket name should match. expected but was . 2) Failure: test_operations(TC_QueryStringAuthGeneratorTest) [s3-test.rb:254:in `check_url' C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:543:in `start' s3-test.rb:242:in `check_url' s3-test.rb:298:in `test_operations' s3-test.rb:265:in `each' s3-test.rb:265:in `test_operations']: delete bucket. > expected to be an instance of but was . From the second time and going on you get a different error in place of the first one (you keep getting the second): 1) Failure: test_operations(TC_AWSAuthConnectionTest) method test_operations in s3-test.rb at line 45 method each in s3-test.rb at line 37 method test_operations in s3-test.rb at line 37 bucket is empty. expected but was . That's no good.

Make me a gem
I agree. You guys did a great job but it would be nice if all I had to type was script/plugin install ... or gem install.

Not impressed with the ruby on rails support
First of all, I think it's a little confusing to distribute the library files for using the Amazon S3 in Ruby on Rails through the "Code Samples" folder. Package it up in a gem and get it listed in one of the primary Gem repositories. I couldn't get the included tests to run: Loaded suite s3-test Started EF Finished in 75.264583 seconds. 1) Error: test_operations(TC_AWSAuthConnectionTest): Errno::ETIMEDOUT: Operation timed out - connect(2) /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `initialize' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `open' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `connect' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:48:in `timeout' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/timeout.rb:76:in `timeout' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:560:in `connect' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:553:in `do_start' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:542:in `start' ./S3.rb:194:in `make_request' ./S3.rb:125:in `create_bucket' s3-test.rb:27:in `test_operations' 2) Failure: test_operations(TC_QueryStringAuthGeneratorTest) [s3-test.rb:243:in `check_url' /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.8/net/http.rb:543:in `start' s3-test.rb:231:in `check_url' s3-test.rb:250:in `test_operations']: create_bucket. > expected to be an instance of but was . 2 tests, 1 assertions, 1 failures, 1 errors
