I've got a simple trac page up at https://trac.luon.net/ruby-gstreamer0.10/.
Anonymous svn access via http://svn.luon.net/svn/ruby-gstreamer0.10/

Help is always very welcome :).. Feature-wise the bindings should be almost
on-par with the 0.8 bindings (it's a a fork of the 0.8 bindings so...). 

To get it compiled you'll need to apply the patches in the patches dir to
ruby-gnome2. I'm currently working on getting them accepted upstream, which
seems to go reasonably well :)

I'm aware of that, i already mailed the ruby soc team that i was already
working on the bindings so they could adjust the ideas a little. 

I'm still a student, but i wasn't planning to do a summer of code, the google
timeline sucks (my last exams are around their mid-program evaluations) and
i've already have other plans... But if some other student want to further
improve them, it's always welcome :)
