I wrote a tool which generates a git repository containing the D 
components as submodules:

https://github.com/CyberShadow-D/D

This repository has a linear history, and contains only updates 
to its submodules. The submodule updates are mainly pull request 
merge commits, obtained by traversing each repository's commit 
tree, starting with the master branch, through each commit's 
first parent. These commits are interwoven in a chronological 
order, so that all pull requests merged within the same 
week/day/hour are always neighbored together, regardless of the D 
component.

The result is a repository which should be much easier to 
regression-test than individual D components, as there are often 
D changes which require simultaneous changes to several 
components. Using this repository with "git bisect run" allows 
easily pinpointing the pull request which introduced a regression.

The repository updates hourly. The tool itself can be found here:

https://github.com/CyberShadow/D-dot-git

TODO: support branches other than master. This will expose 
release tags currently hidden on release branches (however, I'm 
not sure how useful that would be to git bisect in this 
particular case).

I've been using the following repository to build the most recent dmd, druntime, and phobos: https://github.com/carlor/dlang-workspace Are they similar? Ali

Not quite, but perhaps you could use them together. I haven't considered D.git's utility in making it easier to get the bleeding-edge D version - I suppose it might help a bit, but that's not really its primary purpose, which is to aid regression testing. What's missing from D.git is a way to build a working compiler from any point in time (any commit in D.git), but I think this job is better left to projects such as the one you mentioned, Martin Nowak's create_dmd_release, or the "compile" action Nick Sabalausky added to Jacob Carlborg's dvm tool.

Hmm, looks like it's spamming the D repositories because of the hyperlinks :( https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dmd/pull/3016 Sorry about that. I disabled updating until I get a reply from GitHub tech support.

Ugh. Even though I deleted the repository and GitHub account, there's still "ghost" comments scattered across all recent D pull requests. GitHub support can't remove them either. Sorry about this. I moved the repository itself to BitBucket: https://bitbucket.org/cybershadow/d/commits

Yikes, I remember writing a short script that listed all unmerged but closed pull requests. Luckily the github scripts died before adding +500 commit references when I pushed this to github.
