Given the release of 2.063, it would be good to upgrade. Clearly I could
download the deb and rpm files and put them in my local repository.
However, there is the D APT repository and it seems good to use this
instead for Debian.

I wonder if it would be a good idea for people interested in Debian
stuff to get together led by Jordi and turn
https://code.google.com/p/d-apt/ into something that is clearly an
integral part of the D core activity based on a dlang.org domain URL?
Something similar to get Fedora 18 (and 19?) packages in place as well?

The alternative is to inject directly into Debian Unstable and into RPM
Fusion which would of course be even better.

Yes, please. But I wonder if RPM Fusion would balk at dmd's kooky distribution restrictions?

Hummm=E2=80=A6 that may just make it impossible to get DMD into Debian, and hence Mint and probably Ubuntu, except in the non-free section. RPM Fusion is less fussy isn't it? --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

Hummm… that may just make it impossible to get DMD into Debian, and hence Mint and probably Ubuntu, except in the non-free section. RPM Fusion is less fussy isn't it?

It may be able to get into non-free, which will still be mostly available to Debian users. Not ideal, but better than nothing IMO. T -- The diminished 7th chord is the most flexible and fear-instilling chord. Use it often, use it unsparingly, to subdue your listeners into submission!
