ignore any previously installed gems and resolve all dependencies again based
on the latest versions of all gems available in the sources.

Supporting Other Platforms
If you want your bundle to support platforms other than the one you're running
locally, you can run
bundle lock --add-platform PLATFORM to add PLATFORM to
the lockfile, force bundler to re-resolve and consider the new platform when
picking gems, all without needing to have a machine that matches PLATFORM handy
to install those platform-specific gems on.
For a full explanation of gem platforms, see
gem help platform.
