I'm re-writing aurget in ruby. This is purely as a learning exercise to get me up to speed with ruby for my new job.
I have no idea how far I'm going to take it. Right now it's just something to play with.
If you're so inclined...
git clone https://github.com/pbrisbin/rabbit rake install
Note that it's not always in a working state.
