GitHub is a web-based hosting service for projects that use the Git
revision control system. It includes over a million repositories. It
provides statistics about language using:
http://github.com/languages
Would you please add it to LangPop ratings?

I've kept my eye on it, but it's still way too biased towards Ruby: I
don't believe it represents a very accurate sample of the world at
large just yet. Since it's growing, I think it may, some day...

Not that I have anything against Ruby - I use it for these statistics!
