I'm Mark Klein, a 14 year old high school student from Honolulu, Hawaii.
I'm participating in the Google Code-In contest for 2012 and for my task, I
designed two logos and wrote a mission statement for the Fedora/Ruby SIG.
Here's the link to the two logos:
This is the mission statement:
The goal of the Fedora/Ruby Special Interest Group is to become the
defacto-platform for ruby development. This is being achieved with our
stack incorporating security fixes and new features while complying with
both Ruby and Fedora standards.
I hope you like my contribution to the Fedora/Ruby SIG!
Just for your information, I have pushed ruby-2.0 branch into the Ruby's
git repo. So if you like test the latest Ruby, you need to get the
latest HEAD tarball, which could be prepared using:
$ cd /path/to/your/ruby/sources
$ ./tool/make-snapshot tmp
Note that you have to have available subversion and bison on your
system. Also note that the content of tarball is needed to be repacked,
that the Ruby sources will be stored in "ruby-2.0.0-p0" folder (I know,
it is annoyance, but you can fix the spec and send me a patch ;). Also
note that I currently keep the ruby_abi at 1.9.1, while the official
release will have 2.0.0 probably. This should allow you to use Fedora's
gems without rebuild. Any comments/patches are appreciated.
Hey all just a reminder, this is still going on and tasks can be added
This is a contest for high school students so tasks have to be quite a
bit smaller in scope than what your used to and mentoring students takes
some time, but is definitely a worthwhile experience IMO.
As before, if you're interested in this just shout out here or on IRC
and we can figure something out.

If you are thinking of getting a work done this would be a good news.
Fedora is participating GCI 2012 where students work on defined tasks.
Therefore if you have any task we can add it to the list and get it
done. Tasks that are feasible for students to complete such as design,
documentation, QA, testing and simple coding can be added to this
list. Therefore if you have any requirement like posters for your
release parties and kind of, please let me know, so that I can add

Just wanted to let you know that as a follow up to the original screencast,
I have also created a detailed, step-by-step written tutorial.
