I'll use the png you put on the rubyinstaller google group and make a quick mod to the logo as a prototype for Pavel to look at.  I'll also send Pavel an email and as him to update the graphics appropriately.

I'm not following you on the what's not correct with the Icon and iso.

What about the .so's and .dll's you put in above and beyond what's in the mswin binary download from ruby-lang.org?  Do these count as "popular extensions" in your mind, or just basic requirements that need to be there in the first place?

Will be changed to link to the homepage of our GitHub wiki

Will put in a placeholder in the footer for review.

I'll work on the links and/or an updated proto download page that links to RubyForge.

Two followup issues:

1) Do we need to touch base with the RubyForge folks on any potential bandwidth issues given the previous popularity of OCI and our expected installer size?

2) Where will we be hosting the 12MB+ DevKit?  Sourceforge?
