Updated the GDC Project page with some better information.

Also got started on a ProjectIdeas page, as the list of things 
that I'm currently keeping under my umbrella needs to start being 
distributed by anyone who wants to help out with the project.

There's not just development work, so you can help out too!

I think I'd like to help out with the documentation. I have a 1.5 hour subway commute every day that is horribly unproductive, and I believe I can spend that time cleaning up some of the documentation with my tablet. I don't believe that I have the knowledge to create any new documentation, but I can consolidate/improve/organize existing documentation, and that might help. It appears GDC is scattered in several places. So, I could use some help getting some historical perspective, a view of the current documentation landscape, and what you'd like to see as an end result (for example, which documentation to you want moved, and where would you like it moved to). I'd also be willing to migrate issues from one bug system to another if you'd like. Mike

There are three pages on Wiki4D. They all need to be removed, but the latter two I'd like to see moved across to the new wiki. The first (2) for historical, the second (3) for technical. 1. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?D__Tutorial/StartingWithD/Compiler/GDC 2. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?GccFrontEnd 3. http://prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?GdcHacking There's already an empty page for the last link: http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/Hacking There might be one or two pages from the self hosted wiki that never made it to the new wiki before I shut it down, I can bring back up a read-only version of the pages. For the most part, the migration from old wikis to wiki.dlang was just a straight copy from left to right, fixing up any syntax differences along the way.
 I'd also be willing to migrate issues from one bug system to another if
 you'd like.

Only bugs that need migrating to bugzilla.gdcproject.org are here: https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/issues?status=new&status=open There's also a downloads page on bitbucket that I'd like to move off to self-host at some point. Let me know if you need anything else. Iain.

Hmm it says there that there are lots of bugs in the bug tracker, but I'm only counting ~20: http://bugzilla.gdcproject.org/buglist.cgi?query_format=advanced&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=VERIFIED&resolution=--- Am I viewing the wrong results?

Also: https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/issues?status=new&status=open Lots is subjective. There's certainly more than a couple. a few and several open bugs. :)

What are these? 1) http://gdcwin.sourceforge.net/ 2) http://gdcmac.sourceforge.net/ 3) http://gdcgnu.sourceforge.net/ Are they part of the Iain Buclaw GDC effort? Are they still active/relevant?

I'll need to get in touch with afb on that. He maintains those sites. At a glance these are compiled from sources as of back in 2007. And are compiled against gcc versions that have long since been no longer supported. It's a bit discomforting that there looks to be 200+ downloads of the gdcwin installer a week. :o)

http://gdcwin.sourceforge.net/ says it's D1 compiler based on dmd 1.030. D1 is thought to be a stable release. See also http://dgcc.sourceforge.net/

I did my best to migrate issues https://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/issues?status=new&status=open to http://bugzilla.gdcproject.org/ I hope I've done more good than harm. Let me know if you'd like me to make any changes. Mike

I moved the Hacking page to the dlang.org wiki. But there appears to be some overlap between that page (http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/Hacking) and this page (http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC/Development). Should the two be merged into one? Please let me know you're intentions. Mike

Both should compliment each other. GDC/Development I'll update with any routine tasks and howtos, but keep light on the detail. GDC/Hacking should be nitty gritty and more in depth. Regards Iain
