So there’s this draft ISO standard for the Ruby language. Is it a good standard? Is it useful to implementors? Do we even need a standard? I don’t know, I don’t know, and I don’t know.

What I do know is that it’s hard to have a meaningful conversation about a document which exists only in the form of a monolithic PDF, and for which the only public forum is an issue tracker.

So I give you ruby-standard.org. If you think that it’s helpful to the Ruby community to have a discussion about the standardization effort, I hope you’ll spend a few minutes helping to wikify the standard. If you think the standard is irrelevant, feel free to ignore this and move along. I don’t have an agenda with this; I just want to provide a place for the community to discuss the standard if it thinks the standard is worth discussing.

  1. I wonder how easy it would be to get this working with http://www.co-ment.net/, and if that would be a more useful mechanism for feedback than MediaWiki.
