I was wondering if there is anything equivalent to the Python Software
Foundation (http://www.python.org/psf/), that would be the nominal
sponsor for one or more students and people from the mailing list
could volunteer to mentor students interested in doing ruby based
projects. I have not been a (qualifying) student for a long time;
however, I would be more than willing to assist as a mentor.
