D.gnu - contributing to GDC development

I am primarily a C developer and have 3 years of industrial 
experience in it, mostly have written sockets API related stuff 
along with application development. Have worked in C++ too but 
that is more of personal interest than industrial work. Got 
interested in D language recently. I will be very happy if I can 
do some compiler development work as I have some fascination for 
system programming.

How can I help in development of GDC as a programmer ?

Toolchain developers would be more useful at the moment if you have hardware kit to test gdc on ARM, MIPS, and so forth. GNU/Hurd and FreeBSD would be beneficial also. There's no main entry point to ease you in that I can throw pointers at, but any bug fixing, sending small patches here and there are always welcome. :-) -- Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) = (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Iain, I mailed you at ibuclaw(at)gdcproject(dot)org but seems like you missed it. Hence I posted it here. Antyway, I will get to bugzilla and see if I can fix some bugs. I can't test GDC for Hurd or FreeBSD because I have only one machine (which is being used for learning 100% of the time and it runs on Arch Linux)
