In the project, Ruby porgramming skill is very important.
Write more about your Ruby programming experiences.
In addition, can you show URL to Ruby scripts you wrote?
Please improve project plan more. For example:
* Preparation. E.g. to subscribe to ruby-core mailing list
to check current status of Ruby 1.9.2, installing Ruby
1.9.2 and 1.8.7, etc.
Note that Ruby 1.9.2 are now under feature freeze, and
will be released on July 30 ([ruby-core:28665]).
You will need to compile Ruby 1.9.2 svn version at least
several times. (Optionally, in every week or every day,
and to contribute Ruby 1.9.2's bug fix).
* About development environment and tools you will use.
* About coverage check tool (rcov?).
* Reading changes from Ruby 1.8.7 to 1.9.1 and from
1.9.1 to 1.9.2, and brush up the plan.
* Extracting bioruby-1.4.0.tar.gz, looking at lib/ and
test/unit (andtest/functional), and checking existance
of test files and directories corersponding to library
main files. For example, you can find that
lib/bio/db/genbank exists, but test/unit/bio/db/genbank
does not exist. Of course, in some cases, test files
exist but their contents are poor.
Although it is very difficult, but if you can, it is
good to estimate the needed efforts. It is also good
to prioritize classes/modules to write tests. I think
Bio::GenBank and Bio::GenPept are high priority.
(Not all will be needed, and not limited to the above.)
