a Ruby SIG would be good to get going, we ( ralph and I ) spoke about 
this a while back. I have about 4 dozen rpms that could also go into this.

projects.centos.org solves this very problem :D

But we would need a standard for the specs to get adopted, and working 
with atleast the Fedora standards would be a good place to start.

So, is there interest in the ruby SIG ? and who wants to take ownership 
of spec sanity checking ?
