I wonder if we couldn't kickstarter a fund to let apple hire someone full time to do macruby work?
Anyone @ the mothership know if that'd be well received?

I appreciate the entrance it provides into Cocoa without having to sign up for Objective-C. But where does it fit within Apple's longer term view ? Is MacRuby about to be Orphaned ? It seems like something happened around march 2011. What are the groups within Apple that hate MacRuby and want to kill it as a threat to Objective-C ? I am loath to invest a lot of time and coding in something that is a dead-end. Would love to hear insights from anyone with better insight.
