Helping with IronRuby

Hi all,

I’m looking to get involved with some IronRuby development. Are there
some simple janitorial tasks that I get can my feet with?

Thanks,

By janitorial I meant more simple bug fixing as opposed to docs and
websites. I’ll look into getting a clean run of irtests.

Hi Zac,

http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/contributing has a general list
of ideas for contributions. You could browse that for some ideas of
which are you want to contribute in. By janitorial tasks, are you saying
you are more interested in things like documentation and websites? If
so, you will have to coordinate with Jimmy. If you want to help with
coding tasks, the first step is to get a clean run of the “irtests”
command (see bottom of
http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/modifying-the-sources).

Here is something small you could start with:

Kernel#test (http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/Kernel.html#M005948) has
many cases that we don’t implement yet. The implementation of this
method is in
Merlin\Main\Languages\Ruby\Libraries.LCA_RESTRICTED\Builtins\KernelOps.cs

It might be possible to reuse code in IoOps.cs and FileOps.cs ti
implement this method.
There are some specs for the method in
Merlin\External.LCA_RESTRICTED\Languages\IronRuby\mspec\rubyspec\core\kernel\test_specs.rb

but not many. Add specs here for each case you implement. You’ll need to
figure out what CRuby is doing here as the documentation is not very
good.
The behavior might be different between Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.9. For now
implement 1.8.6 behavior since we haven’t switched to 1.9 yet and the
differences seems to be minimal.

If you would be interested in something bigger we can use some help in
OpenSSL module.
