Congratulations to Benjamin "theuncled" Gorlick — a winner in Google's Summer of Code contest. You may know Benjamin from his unoffical Ruby on Rails Blog or his tireless advocacy of Ruby and Rails within the community, but soon you will know him as the guy who created an "extendable interactive documentation system for Ruby and Rails."
His proposal targets combining the best of php.net's documentation system with PostgreSQL's community user interaction model. He will be working under the mentorship of James Edward Gray II, author of Best of Ruby Quiz and the driving force behind rubyquiz.com.
"I'm honored to have the opportunity to be mentored on an open source project and am excited about contributing something that I truly believe will greatly benefit the Ruby and Rails communities," Ben told me today.
It is difficult to overstate the importance of this project to the community. Like most of us, Ben is juggling multiple commitments these days. Drop him a line and let him know how you can lend your support.
Way to go, Ben!
