D.gnu - Is GDC dead?

Or on hiatus?  David Friedman's site hasn't been updated since the end of
December.  Was the SourceForge page (http://sf.net/projects/dgcc/) ready for
use?  I have a bunch of patches for GDC that I'd like to submit.  Where
should I send them?

You might ask Brad Roberts (the one who setup the bugzilla) to help you out here.

I now David is still alive out there as we've exchanged an email or two and chatted a bit one evening. But he's definitly been distant for a good while now due to life pressure not a real desire to be away from D. I've spent a lot of time preparing a potential 0.18 release that's based off of dmd 0.148's frontend. I've also fixed a few other bugs. There's a couple bugs left to be fixed and a few merge related cleanups that need to be done. I've sort of been holding on them until I can talk with David again. He hasn't responded to the last couple emails I've sent. What sort of patches do you have? Can you create bugzilla entries for them if they're fixing bugs and add the patches as attachments? Please be sure to break them down into one bugzilla entry and patch per issue and don't combine them into one. In case you haven't seen the announcement on digitalmars.D.bugs, the bugzilla db lives here: http://d.puremagic.com/bugzilla/ Thanks, Brad

This is exciting news.
 What sort of patches do you have?  Can you create bugzilla entries for
 them if they're fixing bugs and add the patches as attachments?  Please be

I have more fixes to Make-lang.in and fixes to impcnvgen.c and idgen.c for cross-compiling (specifically Canadian crosses). I also have fixes to the autconf machinery, and various fixes to glue code for things like function declarations, etc. I've created an bugzilla account, so I'll start submitting patches soon.

Are there still plans for a revision-controlled GDC? SourceForge has finally gained Subversion support and it would be nice if changes could be tracked there. I'm becoming more interested in cleaning up some bits of GDC based on the target I've been porting it to. Thanks for the heads up.
 Thanks,
 Brad
