Unnikrishnan Nair:<br>
<br>
&gt; Just curious, which are all the modules need help with? I am<br>
&gt; interested in contributing.<br>
&gt; Thanks.<br>
<br>
There are a lot of methods in File that need to be implemented. That should be
a reasonable place to start. We have some bugs in Dir#glob that could use some
attention too.<br>
<br>
If you want a good self-contained project that will take some time, take a look
at implementing #pack and #unpack.<br>
<br>
Thanks,<br>
-John<br>
