Ruby Open Source Challenge Jump to Story

We received a note from Ania Banaszek from Netguru a Polish Rails consultancy who’s organizing the Ruby Open Source Challenge which started on July 1st. It’s basically a month long bounty to help improve open source projects. This first edition is dedicated to Active Admin, a very popular solution for easy Rails backends. They're letting the community and the leader of the project draw winners and offer them goodies like an iPad, screencasts like Peepcode and Railscasts, tickets to Ruby conferences, etc.
