As I'm currently working with Ruby on Rails, and would like to help
here with what I can, since it was suggested that an application can
be built with Ruby on Rails I offered my help.

If other people in the list would prefer this to be built on another
framework, I wouldn't have any problem leaving it.

I don't think there's any point to comparing the different frameworks,
as we all have different opinions, but Ruby on Rails is the skill that
I can offer to the list.
As about the database you are currently having, I'm sure it wouldn't
be a big problem to interface with a different application.
