[Ironruby-core] Towards Rails on .NET

Awesome information, thanks for bringing us all up a bit to speed!

I'm not just referring to libraries though, I'm talking about the core
functionality (this is, after all, Ironruby-core ;) )

Some (all?) of the libraries will have dependencies on things that
must be implemented in the core IronRuby code, what still needs to be
done in the core code and what can we do to help there?

My assumption (and it may be wrong) is that once a majority of the
core functionality is in place, and stable, then the libraries will
come quicker.

In other words, the cake is still soft in the middle, we can't start
putting icing on until it's done baking.  What can we do to help stoke
the oven?

Or is this an unrealistic view?

So let's assume that for now there aren't any claims anywhere (with the exception of Wayne Kelly looking at OpenSSL and zlib support).

This will let us focus our efforts on places that need it, as well as providing valuable status reports without resorting to email. I'm still writing the app since it involves using a bunch of technology that I don't really use all that often. So hang in there ... it will be done soon!
