Yeah, why don't we merge GDC docs onto the "official" wiki.dlang.org wiki? It will make info on GDC easier to find. All you need to do is to signup for an account and you have full edit rights. T -- What doesn't kill me makes me stranger.

Hang on, I'm confused. I thought the plan was to move to Ddoc hosted on GitHub?
 http://wiki.gdcproject.org

gdcproject.org/wiki is still active and linked to from the gdcproject.org home page. Oh, and -- might be worth tweaking the MediaWiki settings so you don't get the index.php as part of the URL for the new wiki.

I think migrating to wiki.dlang.org like ldc did is a good idea. It might bring some new contributors to the gdc wiki.

Well, FWIW I think a wiki is a better option, it's just much easier to edit than Ddoc.

I moved the main page contents to http://wiki.dlang.org/GDC So should we use wiki.dlang.org as our main wiki?

I think that's a good idea. Consolidating everything in the main wiki will make information easier for newbies to find, and will keep everything in one place for reference. I vote for it.

No it doesn't, stop lying. (Where's my sartalic formatting when I need it) As per documentation: The D language is under development as of this writing; see {current language reference}. At present the current major version of D is 2.0, and there is no way to describe the language supported by GCC in terms of a specific minor version. In general GCC follows the D front-end releases closely, and any given GCC release will support the current language as of the date that the release was frozen. So the 4.7, 4.8 branches present on github are considered releases, but no binary distribution is done other than through eg: Linux distributor repositories. -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Feel free, I'll take down the wiki then once it has all been moved across. -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

I think what he means is: why are there no easily downloadable .tar.gz files where all you have to do is ./configure && make && make install ? Or, better still, 1-click installers for different major platforms as we have with DMD. I know this is one of those "needs someone to step up to the plate" situations, but I think it's true that this would be helpful for potential users of GDC.
