1) As GNOME has matured the number of officially supported language

How would you work to improve this situation?

2) What are your own feelings on supporting fairly new languages and
standards like Go and Perl 6?

I too agree that is not up to the board to decide which languages GNOME supports.

But the board should listen to people like you that voice a concern about it and act. They should:
* Help make sure the right people hear those concerns,
* Get feedback from other people and companies as appropriate. For example, the board could invite you to an advisory board meeting to express your concerns and get their feedback. They could also reach out to other projects or work to get information about developer preferences in general (not just current GNOME developers.)
* Facilitate the work. As Bastien stated, the Foundation can help organize and fund hackfests that really help accelerate work.


Thank you all for considering my questions. Cheers, -Ali
