digitalmars.D - GCD and Fedora

For reasons I can't quite remember, I am having a period of Fedora 19
instead of Debian Unstable. This brings into sharp relief that GDC is
not in RPM Fusion. It should be. Ditto DMD and LDC. Not to mention
Vibe.d, etc., etc.

Is anyone else interested in getting D technologies into Fedora 19 (and
beyond)? Perhaps we should form a cabal and find out how to get stuff
into RPM Fusion, and create a build process for all the technologies
that automatically includes pushing there?

(Debian Unstable should also be a target, GDC is handled by the GCC
folk, the rest isn't there — caveat the
http://netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/project/d-apt repository, but that
isn't really the righ way of getting to a wide Debian, Ubuntu and Mint
audience.)

It would be great if the build framework for these were in Git or Mercurial repositories so that others could chip in. DMD gets an rpm as well as a deb, but they are standalone, it would be good to have all the D stuff packaged. Jordi has the D-Apt repository but this needs to be a stepping stone to getting all of them into Debian Unstable. Likewise we should get all D things rpm packaged into RPM Fusion. If there is ready made technology just needed people to get involved, the effort is less and so more likely to happen. Can bioinformatics be persuaded to get his infrastructure somewhere where others can contribute? -- Russel. ============================================================================= Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.net 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
