Well, you might make use of rubyforge to set up a mailing list. Then,
after some archives accrete and you have a better idea of what users
want/need, maybe get a tutorial together. That's what I'd like to see.
Also, a basic homepage (even if you just put the README up there)
would be nice.

I'm hoping to use mkrf in the next couple of weeks, but still need to
learn my way around a bit better.
