One tenth, rather ;-)
More seriously, AFAIK Ruby's development is essentially discussed in Japanese. 
I was looking for more info on Rite's GC some time ago and had to grep a
dozen emails in Japanese :)

I haven't compared the volumes of the mailing lists (or newsgroups if you
prefer) but we already know Ruby is very popular in Japan, and there's a
huge amount of Ruby know-how hidden behind Kanjis.

Japanese is definitively the next language after Ruby (or is it before?) :-)
