[ruby-81] Favorite Rails non-API reference?

Hey all,

I've been having trouble finding reference materials on certain 
aspects of Rails. Not even the RubyOnRails.com seems to have any of 
these:

1. Rails directory structure
What is the intended purpose for each of the directories in the 
standard Rails directory structure? What are some additional 
semi-standard directories that people create for custom needs?

2. Rails command reference
What are all the magical things that can be done with the stuff in 
the script directory? What about the Rails command itself?

3.Rails packaged JavaScript reference
What're all the treasures in the public/javascripts directory?

4. Rake.
How do I write my own Rake tasks?

5. Plugins, plugins, plugins.
Is there a comprehensive (or at least comprehensible) one-stop list 
of all the best plugins floating around in the plugin-o-shere? Are 
there user reviews on them?

Bonus: Is it possible to un-plugin a plugin without leaving litter 
behind? Or do I have to resort to a source code rollback?

If you have a favorite book, website or back alley for this sort of 
information I'd like to hear about it, even if it's well-known. I'm a 
bit isolated out here, so I don't always know about the stuff all you 
young whippersnappers are up on.
