Our company is currently working on a large government contract to
develop an elearning system using Ruby on Rails. To support our needs,
we have added numerous useful features to ActiveRecord over the past
year or so; they include things such as proper support for PostgreSQL
schemas, saving binary data in PostgreSQL (currently broken as of
Rails 2.1), SQL reflection for stored procedures, calling stored
procedures using ActiveRecord, support for serializing (to_xml or
to_json) objects of multiple classes into the same array... Now, my
employer is seriously considering allocating person-hours for us to
work with the Rails core team to get our patches included in trunk.
We believe our changes to be quite useful, and consider it only fair
that we should give back to the community around this great project.
The question is, whether you would be interested in helping us with
this process, and including this functionality.
Thanks, I'll look forward to your replies,
