Benjamin Gorlickâ?s Ruby on Rails doc project wins Google S


Quoted here in full:

Congratulations to Benjamin “theuncled” Gorlick â?? a winner in Google’s
Summer of Code contest. You may know Benjamin from his unoffical Ruby on
Rails Blog or his tireless advocacy of Ruby and Rails within the
community, but soon you will know him as the guy who created an
“extendable interactive documentation system for Ruby and Rails.”

His proposal targets combining the best of’s documentation
system with PostgreSQL’s community user interaction model. He will be
working under the mentorship of James Edward G. II, author of Best of
Ruby Q. and the driving force behind

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to be mentored on an open source
project and am excited about contributing something that I truly believe
will greatly benefit the Ruby and Rails communities,” Ben told me today.

It is difficult to overstate the importance of this project to the
community. Like most of us, Ben is juggling multiple commitments these
days. Drop him a line (re[email protected]) and let him know how you can
lend your support.

Way to go, Ben!
