Hi folks,

I've been working on reformulating the Rena library. I've hacked with
it a bit, but I'm seeking contributors who can work on making it

The repository is at http://github.com/tommorris/rena/new (the main
branch contain Masahiro Sakai's original code, and I'm hoping to pull
in working code from there)

I'm working on basically rewriting each function and - following the
philosophy of XP and TDD/BDD, building the simplest possible thing
that will work. All the components are specified in RSpec.

If you want to test and develop my rewrited code (which is far from
complete), you can do the following:

1. Install git (apt-get, port or tarball from git.or.cz)

2a. run: git clone git://github.com/tommorris/rena.git
then run: git checkout remote/new
b. download http://github.com/tommorris/rena/tarball/new and open

3. run: rake dependencies
(this is a task to make sure your system has all the relevant Ruby gems to

4. run: rake spec
(this runs all the tests)

Contributing is easy - you can either send me patchfiles, or use
Git[1]. If you actively work on the project, I'll send you a Github
invite to make it easier to work on the code base.

Eventually, I'd like to turn these humble beginnings into a Gem and
put it on Rubyforge.
