I put in a request to add 'D' as a Trove language categorization some
months back ... along with the info that they had "Assembly" mentioned
twice. They corrected the "Assembler" redundancy, but obviously didn't
add 'D'.

Part of me wonders, "how hard could it be to add 'D'", but I suppose
they want to be cautious and selective about languages that they
perceive to be below "critical mass".

they let one of the request sitt there for 1.5 years with out any follow up at all! that can't be good. Either add it or don't add it. Now I'm mad at them. that can't be good either. Ant
