It's old news by now that CouchDB is moving to the Apache Software Foundation. So what's the family here in the Incubator like, in terms of the other incubating projects?

Currently Incubating Projects By Primary Language

21 Java projects, one project in C, C#, Erlang, Javascript, PHP, and Ruby each

That sure is a lot of Java!

A couple of the non-Java projects look like they haven't been all that active lately (TripleSoup and XAP). Two others are just ports of existing Apache Java projects to other languages (Lucene.NET and Log4php, the first of which is apparently orphaned.) Which leaves just Buildr and CouchDB. And while Buildr is written in Ruby, it is a build system for Java applications.

Just an observation.
