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.

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.
