Concordion for Ruby and Maven

Concordion for Ruby
Ben Goodspeed has written a very neat Ruby port of Concordion and packaged it as a gem. There are currently some minor syntactical differences between the Java version and the Ruby version because the Ruby version doesn't do lookahead variable bindings yet (Ben's working on that) but the core functionality is already implemented (set, execute, assertEquals, and verifyRows).

Maven Integration
Several people requested that the Java version of Concordion be added to Maven repositories and thanks to José Manuel Beas, Wang Yi Zhou, Craig Walls, and others, this is now done (instructions for usage with Maven are here). Concordion 1.3.0 has the same functionality as 1.2.0 but with Maven support.
