NNTP Gateway for ruby-doc Mailing List

Gmane [0] provides NNTP gateways (i.e., Usenet) for some number of mailing lists.  Among these are some Ruby
mailing lists:

news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.documentation
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.german
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.cvs
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.core
news://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.general

(That last one is the same as comp.lang.ruby, already available as a formal Usenet group.)

1.8 docs, 1.4(!) docs

Firstly, I'd like to ask if anyone has any docs (in progress) for
1.8?  I have built docs automatically from the snapshot:

http://www.eng.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~hgs/ruby/RUBY_SNAPSHOT_RDOC/index.html

but there are problems with this, IMHO.  In particular, Net::HTTP
seems to have most of its get related methods with arguments called
arg1, arg2, arg3.  This doesn't convey much semantic information.  I
can't debug why my script to grab a web page won't work in 1.8 when
it will with 1.6.7.  I know there is an Net::HTTP::Get class now,
but can't see how to use it.  I suppose I should use Uri... for this
in 1.8, but I'd like to keep my code portable where possible.

Secondly, there is, on ruby-doc.org, a copy of the 1.4 manual in
HTML.  I don't know if anyone is going to bring this up to date, but
whether or not they do, I made an index to it by hand (I didn't know
enough ruby to attempt an automated system at the time, and have not
tackled the problem since).  If someone wants to grab this for the
ruby-doc site they are welcome to it. It is at:

http://www.eng.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~hgs/ruby/ruby-man-1.4/a2zindex.html

It will need some gsub'ing because it uses absolute URLs.

I think Gavin Sinclair is the best person to answer this.

Great, we'll take a look. James is always happy to add new doc info
to his library.

There was (or is) a project to update the comments in the source, and I
would imagine
this would include Net::HTTP.  I have no idea what the status of this,
though.
I wonder if there is any feedback process to let those doing the commenting
how well it comes across to an end user?  (Is class Foo
  http://www.eng.cse.dmu.ac.uk/~hgs/ruby/RUBY_SNAPSHOT_RDOC/classes/Foo.html
supposed to be there?)

I was working on commenting stuff in the source ... and then I moved
house.  Haven't got back to it yet.  Net::HTTP was something I
considered hard, IIRC, because the file net/hhtp.rb is so huge!

BTW I just grepped that file and it appears that exactly three methods
use argN as parameters.  CVS tells me the definition of HTTP.get has
changed since 1.6.8: it used to have well-named parameters.  I don't
know if there's any functional change to the get method, but the file
is about 6k longer.

See the Matrix class as one example of a finished product.
