Mr Bones version 1.3.5
    by Tim Pease
    http://codeforpeople.rubyforge.org/bones
    (the "Skeletor" release)

== DESCRIPTION

Mr Bones is a handy tool that builds a skeleton for your new Ruby projects.
The skeleton contains some starter code and a collection of rake tasks to
ease the management and deployment of your source code. Mr Bones is not
viral -- all the code your project needs is included in the skeleton (no
gem dependency required).

== CHANGES

* 2 minor enhancements
  - Added a bones:debug task to inspect the PROJ open struct or
    a single attribute of the PROJ open struct
  - Small adjustments to the gem and spec tasks
* 1 bug fix
  - Project names can now contain dahes (my-proj)

== INSTALL

* sudo gem install bones

== SYNOPSIS

To create a new "Get Fuzzy" project:

  bones get_fuzzy

If a new release of Mr Bones comes out with better features the "Get Fuzzy"
project will need to be updated:

  bones --update get_fuzzy

And if you ever get confused about what Mr Bones can do:

  bones --help

== REQUIREMENTS

Mr Bones does not have any "requirements", but if you do not have the
following gems installed you will not get all that Mr Bones has to offer.

* rubyforge - for easy gem publishing to rubyforge.org
* rcov - for code coverage testing
* rspec - if that's the way you roll
* facets - for pretty colors

== FUN FACT

90% of New York City cab drivers are recently arrived immigrants.
