An article by The Register on which parts of the new dynamic languages Microsoft is creating will accept contributions from the community. Since the Dynamic Language Runtime will eventually distributed as part of the .NET framework (and used by Visual Basic.NET), they will not accept contributions to the DLR (although it is likely to remain Open Source). IronRuby already accepts community contributions into its libraries, something not yet possible with IronPython. In the future hopefully both IronPython and IronRuby will accept contributions into both the libraries and the core language.
