Erlang and Clojure don't seem to take off on github, despite being very visible in HN..

It seems that everybody speaks about these languages but then they don't use them.

Or they use them for getting work done and not for open source projects on GitHub. Clojure seems to be one of those languages where you can be just as productive creating the software yourself from whole-cloth as trying to grok someone else's DSL.

If that's true then large bodies of application specific code would exist off the GitHut radar, I suspect.

Not sure about Erlang.
