D.gnu - gdmd name

I don't think there's anything wrong with GDMD, but here's a few other ideas
based on the naming of 
other GCC frontends:

GDC - GNU D Compiler (from GPC - GNU Pascal Compiler)
DGCC - D for GCC (from CGCC - Cobol for GCC and PL1GCC - PL1 for GCC)
GD - GNU D (from GM2 - GNU Modula-2)
GCD - GNU Compiler for D
DCC - D Compiler Collection

Probably the nomenclature most in-line with the UNIX tradition is GDC.  Many
UNIX systems define the 
system C compiler to be CC (C Compiler).  Hence the system D compiler should be
DC.  GCC is the GNU 
C Compiler (Well, it was originally.  It's now far more than that.)  Hence the
GNU version of DC should 
be GDC.

Overall, I don't think it makes that much difference.

I think DGCC is a good logical start. GCD is actually funny if you think of it. DCC is not really accurate (it's not really a D compiler collection). Just an opinion. Great work! John R.

One reason I didn't use one of those to start with was that I
couldn't tell one from the other. One can barely tell the
difference between
"jee" "cee" "cee" and "jee" "cee" "dee" or "jee" "dee" "cee".

That's a fair criticism.

I don't know, but I'll throw out some guess... The request form may be helpful: http://www.opend.org/Request.html I think Jan Knepper created the site and I suspect it runs on his server. I don't think he follows the D or D.gnu groups usually, but he does follow the c++.windows.32-bits group. As you can see from visiting the site, Burton Radons is the main uploader (dli, dig, etc.). But he hasn't uploaded anything in a while. -- Justin http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
