I've finally started checking in stuff and am getting pretty close to a 
first release (I think).

Why are you particularly eager for this release? That is, what 
feature(s) in FXRuby 1.4 are you waiting for?

Once the code's released, the main way to help is to pound on it and 
use the RubyForge bug reporting system (hint: not private e-mails to 
me) to report problems. Provide example code that demonstrates the bug 
when at all possible. Write tutorial documentation for other people to 
use, and answer questions on the mailing list when it's a subject 
you're already familiar with.

Stay tuned...

P.S. Don't worry too much about the wxRuby crew. There are more 
important things in life to worry about. ;)
