I think I am at a point where I can truly contribute to a Ruby open source project, can you suggest one or more that would be open to having a true beginner contribute. This would be my first group project where I would like to be 'mentored' or something similar by a more experienced coder. I would be able to work in my free-time and for free.

Maybe "Hello World"? – Crazy Eddie Jun 30 '11 at 21:07
I made it past hello world months ago, its only one line in Ruby – opensourcechris Jun 30 '11 at 21:24

Head over to OpenHatch or ohloh and do some looking around. Both of these sites are good places to start looking for open source projects to contribute to.
