I've finally got around to updated my FEC report parsing gem FECHell on the FECHell github page. The FEC had released a mostly cosmetic update to their FEC Vendor Tools a few months ago, but I've been slacking. The latest FECHell gem (0.2.0) supports everything from 3.00 to the very latest 7.0. I'm going to have to flesh out some of the unit tests after this next filing deadline since I haven't found examples of some of the schedules (SC1) yet. This version of FECHell still uses FasterCSV, so it is tied to Ruby 1.8.X. I'm hoping to find a workaround soon to enable 1.9 support. Comments and questions or pull requests are always appreciated.
