    In case some folks haven't seen Tanner's posting there is a Ruby Virtual
    Users Group now in action. The project is up at RubyForge[0]:

    http://rubyforge.org/projects/ruby-vug/

    We are going to start actively looking into the team nopaste starting
    tomorrow, so in case you are interested feel free to join the Mailing List.

    The contents of this email are:
    - What is the Ruby-VUG?
    - Who's the Ruby-VUG For?
    - How Does the Ruby-VUG communicate?
    - Future Project Listing
    - How Does Project Collaboration Work?


    What is the Ruby-VUG?
    ---------------------
    The Ruby Virtual Users Group is an online users group focusing around
    the ruby language. We recognize that not every rubyist or person
    interested in ruby has the ability to be apart of a local ruby users
    group. We want an option to be available to others anywhere on the globe
    to where people can share ideas, join collaborative projects and
    essentially learn from one another.


    Who's the Ruby-VUG For?
    ------------------------
    - people intereseted in ruby who don't have local users groups in
    their areas
    - people interested in ruby who don't have the time to meet with local
    user groups one day a week or even one day a month
    - people interested in ruby who are constantly on the go


    How Does The Ruby-VUG Communicate?
    ----------------------------------
    We communicate via the ruby-vug mailing list[1] and on irc.freenode.net,
    channel #ruby-vug. A little ways down the road we're going to start
    looking into group meetings via a instant messenging program with the
    ability to plug in webcams, microphones, etc... See the future project
    listing below for more information.


    Future Project Listing
    ------------------------
    - a team version of nopaste [2]
    - a team plugin to Freeride [3] (think remote pair programming on
    steorids)
    - an xBase library in ruby [4]
    - ...[add your idea here]...


    How Does Project Collabaration Work?
    -----------------------------------
    Since we're just about to undertake our first project we don't entirely
    know how it works. We are committed to finding a way that works best for
    our virtual users group. The ruby-vug wants you to feel comfortable
    collaborating ideas, thoughts, and to projects anytime and anywhere you
    can.


    If You've Read This Far You Better Read This
    --------------------------------------------
    If you've read this far, you're obviously interested in the ruby-vug to
    some extent. If you've got a few hours you can spend a week, every two
    weeks or even a month consider checking out the ruby-vug's mailing list.
    Some of the project listed above may seem pretty hardcore or maybe
    they seem a little easy for you. Just know that there's always a spot on
    a ruby-vug project for a newbie, an intermediate or a master rubyist.

    If you have any project ideas please feel to voice them on the ruby-vug
    mailing list. Also thanks for reading this far, and I hope to see you
    around on the ruby-vug list.

    As a developer of FreeRIDE I fully second this project. it has always
    been in the objective of FreeRIDE to offer a collabarative development
    environment. Having a plugin of this kind in FreeRIDE would de really
    neat!! I have recently posted a call for help on ruby-talk for the
    FreeRIDE project and although this item was not in the list of things
    to do it is still very high on the list of highly wanted feature.

    Hope this will trigger some interests in the ruby VUG
