Cleanup RubyForge

There are a lot of bugs on the rubyforge tracker system, as well as
patches
for some, and some that have been found invalid.

Can we cleanup rubyforge tracker/patches? Is the tracker being used
internally by the IronRuby Team? Should we adopt a patching system at
least
socially like rails?

For those not used to the rails patch process.
Basically three community members must comment on the ticket that the
patch
runs for them when applied to the current svn repository.
This allows the submitter to put a tag on the ticket which puts it in a
priority 1 report for the core team to apply within the next cycle,
usually
within the next week.
There are also other report queues that have corresponding tags so that
they
can clean up bad patch bug combo’s.

I agree, RubyForge seems to be woefully underutilized. It should be
kept up to date and be THE resource for IronRuby development.

Working on this right now. Thanks for the poke :slight_smile:

This might be too high of a bar given our current rate of contributions.
That said, it would be awesome if folks could ping the list when the
post a patch and reference the patch # in the ping.

Just finished triaging all of the open bugs. I closed a few after
verifying the fixes but at least every bug has an owner. Will hopefully
close some of the older / simpler ones today.
