Comp.lang.ruby.rails?

I’m a ruby-only developer (so no Rails) and I wondered why there is no
special Rails-Group. One main reason for rubys growing popularity is in
fact Rails. But if I want to get an answer for a ruby-only-questions, I
don’t want to get those huge amount of Rails-specific topics. And it’s
the same if I’m looking for some poor guys with prolems concerning
ruby-basics to help.
The people with questions concerning ruby itself can head for
comp.lang.ruby and the others with special Rails-problems can discuss
at comp.lang.ruby.rails
With more than 4000 members, I think there are enough coders outside to
fill both of these groups.

What do you think?

Great idea. I guess rails’ mailing list could then be linked to that new
group as well.

Oh but there is! comp.lang.ruby is actually a gateway to the ruby-talk
mailing list, and messages are mirrored back and forth. There is a
Rails mailing list as well, and it’s on Google groups.

I believe you can access it via NNTP using gmane’s gateway, but I’m not
a big usenet fan so I don’t know how that all works.

It might be a good idea to set up a new newsgroup and mirror the rails
mailing list. Can’t hurt anyway, so long as the folks responsible for
that list are interested and someone wants to run it.

There’s not that many rails-specific questions, and almost all of them
are redirected to the Rails mailing list/Google Group.

The people with questions concerning ruby itself can head for
comp.lang.ruby and the others with special Rails-problems can discuss
at comp.lang.ruby.rails

I’m not sure that’s necessary, and setting up such a newsgroup would
be the responsibility of someone connected with the rails mailing
list, IMO.
