D - DMD To-Do list

Is there a place, perhaps on the DMD site, where the major outstanding
issues are listed, along with any possible/opposing intentions, the
completion level, and the likely date of completion? It'd be much easier for
those of us who necessarily dip in and out, but want to contribute, to be
able to see at a glance what are the hot topics.

Of course, you can say look in the newsgroup, but the ng contains a variety
of issues - bugs, other language contrasts, etc. etc. - so it's quite
time-consuming.

Now, if we had multiple D newsgroups ...

Taxonomically yours

So does that mean that most of the conceptual issues are resolved?

Having just got back up to speed on the NG after a couple of months of other
things, it seems that there are still some issues unresolved, or perhaps
some people who have not accepted the resolutions.

Foremost on the list is, I guess, the modules/symbols issue, but there are
also more prosaic issues, like the sizeof(bool), etc.

And, that's not to mention the need for libraries, and the even more
important need for library organisation, coherence and control

Or am I completely misinterpreting the current state of D?

There has been a discussion about an open bug list and we had to accept that Walter thinks that it is an too easy for critics to use such a list to put D down. It would be the same for a list of outstanding issues. Youmay have noted that there is now a Linux version, so this is a big step forward. -- Helmut Leitner leitner hls.via.at Graz, Austria www.hls-software.com

Understood.

I'm not really talking about bugs, though, more any large outstanding
theoretical issues.
