Bonjour Maxime,

Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks for your interest in the project... we totally need help, as  
Thibault said :)

Just to let you know, 0.5 is almost done, we are now focusing on 0.6,  
in trunk. I intend to release 0.5 final in a few days, I will give a  
status of the latest changes on the mailing-list before. The goals of  
0.6 will also be discussed on the list right after the 0.5 release.

The best way to start is probably to go through the bugs in Trac, pick  
something that looks easy and try to fix it. Once you have a patch,  
attach it to the radar and I will have a look at it :)

A bug that was recently added that looks easy: http://www.macruby.org/trac/ticket/571

Once you are familiar with the code base, you can get one of the tasks.
