I am looking for pledges so that I can continue to work on some
open source Ruby projects that are, in my opinion, of great benefit to
Ruby programming community at large.
The project I will spend the majority of my time on is called
Win32Utils consists of a collection of libraries specifically aimed at
Microsoft Windows operating system.
Libraries consist of interfaces for the clipboard, the event log, file
system monitoring, services and so on. It is one of the most downloaded
projects on RubyForge.
Another project I will be focusing on is called “SysUtils”. The SysUtils
project is a collection of libraries that target system adminstration
issues. This includes interfaces for gathering process information,
administering users, gathering CPU information and so on.
There is also the “Shards” project, a miscellaneous collection of
that range from generating HTML tables, to finding files on your file
system, to replacements for older code that exists in the Ruby standard
Another project that is incredibly important in my opinion is the “Pure”
project. This project consists of pure Ruby versions of popular C
such as zlib or win32ole.
On top of all that I would like to spend time contributing to other
important projects, such as rubygems.
If you feel that these are worthwhile efforts, please contribute, and
