Yes, Nokogiri is built on top of the libxml2 project from Gnome.
libxml2 is actively developed and well supported since it is the XML
parser used by the Gnome project:

If you find bugs, we have a

* mailing list: http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/nokogiri-talk
* IRC Channel on freenode: #nokogiri
* Ticketing system:
  http://nokogiri.lighthouseapp.com/projects/19607-nokogiri/overview
* RDoc: http://nokogiri.rubyforge.org/nokogiri/

I've switched my projects from Hpricot to Nokogiri, and I'm quite happy.
