digitalmars.D - Dub, Debian, Fedora

Is anyone in a position to get Dub as a Debian and Fedora package? I am not meaning d-apt here for Debian, but actually in the Debian repository. D implemented projects are at a huge disadvantage compared to Go and Rust because the preferred package manager and build tool is not in the various distributions. Using SCons or CMake doesn't really cut it for getting the dependencies, at least not without replicating the functionality of dub. Given that go and cargo are in the Debian repository and go is in the Fedora one (Rust hasn't made it yet), Go, C++, Python, and Vala are still the only real choices of programming language for creating applications destined for the Debian and Fedora distributions. =C2=A0 --=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
