Maybe it’d be worth checking in with the original author, and if he
doesn’t mind, we can do a code sprint with the Portland Ruby Brigade
to create a gem, write specs, and publish it to RubyForge? That may
be a useful demonstration of how to take some useful bits lying
around and actually release them.
There’s already a gem:
$ gem search cache
*** LOCAL GEMS ***
And it already has a project page (albeit not a RubyForge one, but
that hardly matters):
The download page there does seem to be empty, but again it’s
published as a gem.
It does come with a test (of sorts) in the old “if $0 == FILE”
style that was prevalent before runit came out, but more coverage
would presumably be better. Also, its API docs are in the RD format,
so inlining those in RDoc form would be nice, too. I’d be willing to
help out if someone wants to contact Okuji-san. He has an active blog
at http://enbug.tdiary.net/, but I don’t speak Japanese.
