I take the honor to report that D has recently passed a 
significant milestone, issue 10_000 was opened in Bugzilla:

http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=10000

So many problems:

http://dlang.org/bugstats

I invite everybody to not just patch around the problems you see 
in your D code, but to reduce and report the issues, especially 
the significant ones that affect everyone or the ones that cause 
wrong results silently. So Kenji Hara and others can remove them 
in no time. Onward to 15_000 issues! It's not easy, but working 
together we'll reach that.

Bye,
bearophile

Soon enough we'll even have the 2000th DMD pull request opened.

I report what I can, and I'd like to say I have been impressed with seeing these bugs get fixed quickly. Reasonably quick bug fixes is very important to encourage bug reporting. Unfortunately, sometimes you just cannot report bugs. I've come across a few rather annoying ones but was unable to reduce the problem to a level that could be reported. Hopefully these difficult to report problems get fixed by fixing other things and refactoring code. --rt

Yeah, the bugfix rate for DMD/Druntime/Phobos is quite on the high side, as far as open source projects go. Keep it up! Also, I'd like to say that if you have written working D programs, you're probably capable of fixing some Phobos bugs. Thanks to D's features, Phobos code is actually quite readable as far as standard libraries go (if you ever tried looking at the source of, say, glibc, or *shudder* ncurses, you'll know what I mean). Many of the simpler bugs are well within the reach of anyone who has working D experience. So, put on your programming hat, and start squashing some Phobos bugs! The more people contribute, the fewer trivial bugs will take up the core devs' time, so they can concentrate on the more difficult issues.

Vladimir Panteleev's dustmite really helps here. It's really simple to use, too. https://github.com/CyberShadow/DustMite T -- The early bird gets the worm. Moral: ewww...

A shockingly enough, it wasn't bearophile who reported it. ;) - Jonathan M Davis
