Early on when I was actively working on libraries I was porting the Rubinius specs to work on my stripped down version of mini-spec. It's been a couple of months since I visited that code, and we have a lot more core language features working now. It's on my list of things to do next week to see what the gap looks like to run mini-spec natively on IronRuby.
