O Paulo, i know very well this guy, he is very active with the brazilian 
community like dsa, hdoria, and even, they really do a great job.

I like to know that you people are encouraged to be TUs.

I will wait until the discussion period *officialy* starts to contribute 
with this thread.

P.S: Good to know that you like Ruby, we had many packages in community 
that were moved to unsupported recently, maybe you should applied 
before! ;] (I told the same to even btw!)
