Josh Matthews (@lastontheboat) also mentioned OpenHatch and Issuehub.io as great resources for contributing to open source. Thanks Josh!
Thanks to André Arko for sharing the story of RubyGems.org with me. If you're a Ruby developer or company, Ruby Together (http://rubytogether.org) is a great community model for supporting Ruby infrastructure.
