We use the latest version of wrongdoc as much as possible.
Please wrap documentation at 72 characters-per-line or less (long URLs are exempt) so it is comfortably readable from terminals.
When referencing mailing list posts, use “mid.gmane.org/$MESSAGE_ID” if possible since the Message-ID remains searchable even if Gmane becomes unavailable.
We target Ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.2+, Rubinius and their respective C APIs.
All of our C code should be compatible with all reasonably modern Unices and should run on compilers supported by the versions of Ruby we target.
We will NEVER directly support non-Free platforms under any circumstances.
Our C code follows K&R indentation style (hard tabs, tabs are always 8 characters wide) and NOT the indentation style of Matz Ruby.
Contributions are welcome in the form of patches, pull requests, code review, testing, documentation, user support or any other feedback. The kgio mailing list is the central coordination point for all user and developer feedback and bug reports.
Follow conventions already established in the code and do not exceed 80 characters per line.
Inline patches (from “git format-patch -M”) to the mailing list are preferred because they allow code review and comments in the reply to the patch.
We will adhere to mostly the same conventions for patch submissions as git itself. See the Documentation/SubmittingPatches document distributed with git on on patch submission guidelines to follow. Just don’t email the git mailing list or maintainer with kgio patches :)
It is easy to install the contents of your git working directory:
Via RubyGems (RubyGems 1.3.5+ recommended for prerelease versions):
Without RubyGems (via setup.rb):
It is not at all recommended to mix a RubyGems installation with an installation done without RubyGems, however.
