I'm aware of the Perl Foundation and the Python Software Foundation:
nonprofit corporations intended to further the interests of those
languages, e.g., coordinating development, promotion, fundraising,
teaching, or legal activities as needed.  Do you have opinions as to the
success of these organizations at achieving their intended purposes?  Is
there an equivalent organization for Ruby?  If so, where is specific
info about it?  If not, should their be?  If Yes, in what form?
