D - Helping out.

What would be the best way for a programmer with little to no compiler

then submit compiler bugs?  If so, is there some public bug database that I
could submit them to, or is this list the place for the time being?  I've read
the spec and the whole deal looks quite nice.  I'd like to be able to do
something, but I fear that I don't have the proper skills to do any real low
level compiler hacking.  In any case, keep up the good work.

Yes!

Post them here or email them to me.

What also helps a lot is to put up a personal web page about D and mention D in topical newsgroup posts. The more D has a presence on the internet, the more 'real' it will be and the more it will increase the comfort level of adopters.
