The Rails core team has requested some help stabilizing the 3.1 release. According to http://weblog.rubyonrails.org/2011/7/14/rails-3-1-hackfest they are looking for people to:
- Upgrade your existing apps to Rails 3.1 and report any existing issue if it doesn't already exist
- Test your favorite plugins/gems with Rails 3.1 and report any existing issue if it doesn't already exist
- Review all the open issues and pull requests
- Check if issues can be reproduced
- If so provide as many details as possible (for example it's important for us to know which Rails version/s are affected. They could be 2-3-stable, 3-0-stable, 3-1-stable or master)
- If it's not possible to reproduce the issue, add a comment on github issue tracker indicating that
- Provide test cases and patches for 3-1-stable blockers only (blockers will be tagged as 'blocker')
- Follow the contributing to Ruby on Rails guide
- Try to provide a failing test case (if you can't figure out the whole solution)
- Try to provide a full patch (tests, code and docs if needed)
- Write documentation (guides, API), you can push modifications directly to docrails
- Write blog posts about your experience using 3.1
