These are probably pretty easy questions, I've just never encountered the situation. I'm picking up an RoR project where a previous developer let off. I went and grabbed the project from their svn, but i can't run it b/c it requires a bunch of gems I haven't installed.

What is the easiest way to sync up all the required gems? [there's a bunch] I can grab the list from the server this is running on.

Is there a better way to manage this? Shouldn't dependencies like this be included with the app?

You could also try 'rake rails:freeze:gems' which will put all the system gems in the vendor/rails directory. This might be a bit excessive though depending on how many gems are installed on the server.

If all the gems are required in environment.rb you could also parse it into a set of 'gem install' commands pretty easily. Hackish, yes, but it'd prolly get the job done.
