> Based on the responses so far, it seems that there is a fairly clear preference for Python as a test language, and so I'll propose that Python should be used shorter-term to start replacing test-framework.

I don't think that is the case Nathan, because unless I am mistaken

Jacques-Charles, Kilian Cavalotti and if it is a binary choice today my preference is Python (but please see below)
Bruce was neutral
Roman and Colin (after your email) expressed Perl as a choice.

So the preference would seem to be for Python, counting by people and organization although obviously it's a statistically suspect poll.


NOTES OF MY VOTE: Given the importance of the topic I believe a much broader piece of analysis needs to be done to select the right language, also if this is for an existing framework update the tests must all be in bash or all converted to the new language of choice.
