Yes, thanks for mentioning that, was going to do so too. The Perl  
Foundation and the Python foundation have been accepted.

I guess there isn't a Java Foundation, and if there is a Ruby one it  
hasn't been accepted or hasn't applied. However, Ruby on Rails has  
been accepted. Don't know how open they would be a Bioruby project.
