I'm guessing that when you say "Ruby" you mean "Ruby on Rails," in which 
case the RoR mailing list is going to be more helpful than this list. 
Ruby is a general purpose programming language. Ruby on Rails is a web 
application framework written in Ruby.

Check http://www.rubyonrails.com/community to find out more about the 
RoR mailing list.

Good luck!
