I can't agree with dismissing the performance concern. For a while many infrastructure tools were written in Ruby, and now most of them have moved to Go or another compiled language. I've seen some people playing with Crystal but I don't know anyone using it for those kinds of tools yet.

The thread about the proposed code of conduct last year was such a bummer, and it had a real impact on my enthusiasm for Ruby.
