turn
to maintenance and distribution. So a few questions/comments:

1. Is Deimos "alive and well" as a place to host the current state of a
D adaptor library, or is it best to just have a repository somewhere:
Git/GitHub, Git/BitBucket, Mercurial/BitBucket, Bazaar/Launchpad.

2. There needs to be an idiomatic process for updating DStep generated
but manually amended libraries using DStep.

3. I take it as given this needs to be in the Dub repository, is this
fair?

4. DStep is great.

You're limited to Github and Bitbucket, so that'll answer 1 as well.

No, I would avoid Deimos.

Yes, GitHub to make it accessible to Dub.
 2. There needs to be an idiomatic process for updating DStep generated

DStep has a flag to ignore translating the specified symbols. If you specify that flag for the symbols you need to translate manually. would that be an ok workflow?
 3. I take it as given this needs to be in the Dub repository, is this
 fair?
Yes. If think there's specific category in Dub for bindings to C libraries [1].
 4. DStep is great.
Thanks :) [1] http://code.dlang.org/?sort=updated&category=library.binding -- /Jacob Carlborg
