Thanks for offering the help!
Unfortunately DLTK-Ruby is not actively developed at the moment.
Generics: Parts are updated (slowly :-)) when there is a need for other
changes in the same part. Just not to introduce (more) bugs during bulk
Ruby 1.9: DLTK uses parser from some old JRuby, converting JRuby AST to
DLTK-specific one. Now they have kind of IDE-oriented parser
https://github.com/jruby/jruby-parser , so it should be updated and to
have it enabled for usage we should file a CQ.
Definitely, Ruby needs somebody to work on it.
