I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the significance of
http://rubyforge.org site. I’m very grateful to the kind people
I have one concern, though… have you tried the search feature of the
site? It does not return very significant results. For example, I
searched “state machine” under software/groups category and a whole lot
(and I mean a lot!) of non-relevant results appeared (try it if you
don’t believe me :).
Is there anything I can do to improve this? I’m not sure of what’s the
software powering rubyforge’s. I have not much knowledge about search
engines, but I have successfully implemented the search feature in a
couple of rails applications using ferret and ultrasphinx, so I know
this could work a little better.
But! I have the suspect that a non-ruby application is powering
rubyforge right now… after looking around for a while I haven’t found
which software is running rubyforge. Is it opensource? Can we help
Maybe this could be better implemented using a document-oriented
database approach, I’m not sure about this subject though as I have
never implemented such a system.
