IronRuby on RubyForge …and Social Development

John Lam points out that his IronRuby implementation is now in RubyForge. I’ve had a look in the source code and it looks quite clean but fresh of the press; there’s still the odd Python operation commented out 😛

I like the look of Ruby a lot but still have not done any serious work with it.  Hopefully this new, (sure to be large) RubyForge community will spur me on to get cracking.

I really like the CodePlex / RubyForge / SourceForge approach to software development. However, if the front page was a continuous stream of project activity (like Facebook) I think that the sense of community would be greatly enhanced. It would also create a cool top level RSS feed.

Especially if users could give kudos to developers they felt contributed greatly to the project.
