D.gnu - GDC references on Digital Mars D page

Small query about GDC and its 'home' on the web.  All the references to GDC on
the Digital Mars D page at http://www.digitalmars.com/d/ point to the
Sourceforge page which has shown no signs of life for 2+ years now.  Is there a
project page for the current active effort?  And who needs to be prodded at
Digital Mars to update their links?

Thanks for all the efforts to resurrect GDC, I am very much looking forward to
seeing a GNU-based D compiler for D 2.0 ... :-)

Best wishes,

This is the current project page: http://bitbucket.org/goshawk/gdc/wiki/Home I would assume you would talk to Walter Bright about getting links updated for the front page.

Brilliant, thank you! :-) You missed a couple though -- the main one at http://www.digitalmars.com/d/ still has the old links, and the sidebar links in the 'Tools' menu all still point to the old Sourceforge page. I'm very glad to see GDC development moving forward so well, as I see this as one of the key needs -- a compiler that will be included even in strongly 'free-oriented' Linux distros. (In fact for me it makes the difference between 'serious coding' versus 'playing and enjoying the wonderful language'.)
