Greetings rails'ers,

Extracted from the development of, I'd like to announce
Savage Beast, a rails engine:

Savage Beast simplifies the addition of multiple forums to your rails
app, associating 1 or more forum to a AR Model instance.

For instance adding a forum to a project model,

class Project < ActiveRecord::Base
   has_one :forum, :as => :owner

As this is a engine, overloading is pretty simple - but I must say
that the great encapsulation of behaviour in the Beast, makes for an
easy isolation of functional concerns, and the above use of before
filters was almost all the customization that The Soup needed to
integrate multiple forums.
