tomPorter/gemset_coverage is the project name. Only has one *.rb file in the main directory, is listed in .yardopts.

I can generate yard doc locally, but added all ./docs dir to my git ignore file and repushed to guthub, assuming people would want to regen if needed. (also assume that regenerates docs.)

Regenerating at fails after succeeding earlier.

PS. hos to delete a project from

    Hi Tom,

    The reason it's not updating properly is because you've committed your .yardoc directory, which you should not be doing. It's causing the updates to fail (this directory is machine generated). Remove that from your repo and gitignore it, and updating should start to work.

    Thank you so much!! Works like a charm now.

    Thanks for the quick response as well!!!
