I don't know about Perl and Ruby, but I know that the Qt interface to
MeeGo relies on some libraries called PySide that have a free software
license and are replacing PyQt.     PyQt will still work AFAIK.

The upcoming *FREE* MeeGo Conference from May 23 to 25 in SF at the
Hyatt Regency Embarcadero will feature a tutorial on PySide run by
Thomas Perl and Matti Airas.     See


Thomas is the author of the gpodder app that also runs on Gnome
desktops and which will sync subscriptions among multiple devices.
Thomas (m at thp.io) is a university student from Austria who would love
to meet local Pythonistas while he is in the Bay Area.

The rest of the Conference Schedule is here:


MeeGo has active IRCs (meego-python for example) and mailing lists,
and those are the best places to get any questions you might have
