      I wouldn't recommend writing the tool unless your primary goal is to learn more about Ruby. Even then, I'd not recommend using whatever tool you wrote for a Scrum team unless the team tried it and agreed it was better than anything else available. As far as tools go for Scrum, keeping it simple always works better than PM tools.

      Subject: [scrumdevelopment] Agile Web Based Product - Usefull or a waste of time?

      Hi All

      I have been working on some ideas for writing a web based Agile (SCRUM)
      Project Management Tool using "Ruby on Rails".

      The main objective is too keep it simple, offer the bare minimum to
      manage an Agile Project.

      My thoughts so far are:

      +Project (Main details on project e.g. overview etc)
      +Sub Projects
      +Issues Log
      +Document Repository (attachments)
      +Requirements (User Stories and Notes)
      +Project Backlog
      +Sprint (Iteration Backlog i.e Tasks and resource allocation)
      +Sprint Estimates

      I know that there are mixed feelings amongst people, some say tools
      are a waste of time and that the best tools are things such as Excel
      sticky notes and paper :-)

      Im interested to hear from people on whether such a tool would be
      usefull, also keep in mind that it is also an opportunity for me to
      become proficient in Ruby
