Is there anything in the trunk where I can start from ?

I noticed this plugin last week but didn't find any examples on how to
use it with buildr, may be I should spend some time to try it out.

I'm interested on working on this issue. IMHO, without dependency
management it is very unlikely that buildr will be used in production
code. Which is sad because I think buildr offers a lot of nice features
and the lack of dependency management is the only drawback I could find
so far and it is easy to fix.
