I see that there is a 1.9 suite now, it might be interesting to run  
MacRuby against it. I'm not sure if it's complete, though.


I would indeed be willing to set up some local machines here and  
submit the rubyspec results to the rubyspecresults web app. It won't  
be possible to make the machines accessible from the outside, but it  
looks like it's not a requirement.

Also, MacRuby's PPC support is very preliminary and I think it will be  
deprecated soon, principally because of lack of interest and resources  
to maintain it. I am currently focusing on both 32-bit and 64-bit Intel.
