Started to work on Perforce integration for redmine

I wanted to learn something new and decided to enhance redmine which I'm using for my current project to support Perforce as additional SCM. Therefore I downloaded the sourcecode of the project and started to play around on my machine in order to get a feeling for it.
I need to figure out how everything plays together and where I need to make the appropriate changes to reach my goal.
To be honest: I had some problems (which are caused by the missing knowledge) to get it running in the beginning. But I played a little bit around and read some books and blogs to get it right. Now I feel that my ruby experience is too far behind to call it fluent. There's a lot of room for improvement. Now I start to create my first tests and I let you know the outcome of this experiment and how far I came.

You should be able to add a Perfoce adapter in lib/redmine/scm/adapters. Once you get it working, please submit it as a patch and I'll see about adding it into the Redmine core.
