You know that the night is going to be productive whenever @kohsukekawa shows up, and last night was no exception. We talked about problems on the horizon, potential solutions, and then I spent the last half hour ripping a bit of code.
The truth of the matter is that most of the changes that have to be done to Jenkins core have already been made, so now the bulk of the heavy lifting falls to the Ruby side of things (right now, me).
Anyhow, on to the notes!
extract more stuff into the jenkins-plugins.rb support library (@cowboyd)
We're in the process of extracting, normalizing, documenting all the goop that's currently residing in the ruby plugins playground into a formal plugin support gem called jenkins-plugins https://github.com/cowboyd/jenkins-plugins.rb
recruit Rubyists to implement non-Jenkins specific code (@kohsukekawa)
If you know Ruby and would like to be able to write Jenkins plugins with it, but don't know the first thing about Jenkins and/or JRuby, that's OK.
