Welcome @broad-carpet-61802 @rich-honey-96349 👋. We invite you to say a little something about yourself and your organization, and what motivated you to take a closer look at Pants. You’ll be helping us improve future open source outreach, so thanks very much!

hi there @busy-vase-39202, thank you for the welcome! my company is considering consolidating some of our repos into a monorepo to ease sharing of libraries across our platform. we’re a ruby shop mostly, so was joining to see if there has been any momentum around adding ruby support to the platform and just to generally learn a bit more about how things come together

I can't say we've had much ruby support being drummed up. We accept contributions from anyone though and love coaching, so if that's something you're interested in, let us know!

Yeah, I think this might be the first, maybe second ruby request I recall seeing in recent years. We'd certainly be happy to support and mentor someone who is interested in leading the work of creating a ruby backend, but afaik we don't have any maintainers who have significant background in modern ruby programming. So it'd be fair to take that under consideration.
