AWS-SDK takes too long to install

Not sure why it takes so long to "gem install aws-sdk", but it seriously takes upwards of 10 minutes. If other parts of my build are time consuming, too, that leaves way too close to the time limit. Would you consider including the AWS-SDK gem as a default gem on the build vm image? Or can you advise me on how to speed up that install (takes about 1 minute on my machine).

    Sure, we'll pre-install it next time. Btw, AWS SDK .NET is already installed (in case you need any command-line tools).

    It's been deployed to worker images. Let me know if you need anything else!

    Feodor, Looks like something is going wrong with the build when installing the AWS gem. The following build has been "installing aws" for 6 hours.

    Must be stuck too. Try restarting it.
