A quick look at my daily routines revealed that I spend 7 hours studying the dmd and phobos diffs, Debian, Ubuntu, and Arch linux packages status, bug reports and comments, planet d, running bearophile's benchmarks, dsource & project news, all reddit articles about D, all slides and posts by Walter in various forums. This is all too exciting. If I didn't go to work, there would be even more to learn. The downside is, this leaves no time to really contribute. Problem #2 is I'm not very good at coming up with ideas on how to improve D or the tools. I just spend all time reading, spreading the word, and manipulating reddit votes. I hope I could help D and use D some day. Any thoughts?

Here is something which I plan to do: install Free(PC)BSD stable (there will be 8.2 release soon) and stop worrying about all those packages for the above Linux distros and just update your OS when the new Free(PC)BSD release become available. ;) Sincerely, Gour --=20 Gour | Hlapicina, Croatia | GPG key: CDBF17CA ----------------------------------------------------------------

And in short bits of free time, go through bugzilla and propose pull requests that fix issues. Andrei

Should the pull requests be made in bugzilla or on github? BTW is pull request preferred over patches? -- /Jacob Carlborg

I don't have much experience with pull requests but I think that's the way of the future. Andrei

Go to a park. :-P Seriously, some years later you will regret it. If you work at least 6 hours a day and you spend 7 hours extra in the computer, it's too much for your eyes, brain and body...

DDMD could use more activity: http://www.dsource.org/projects/ddmd LLVM needs exception support on Windows. I *think* LDC and GDC need more work on their D2 versions.

The Druntime and Phobos teams have already done 70% of the work. AFAIK, missing D2 features are: - TLS symbols: Need to be more than just stub variables, but still just about usable as they are. - DbC: In/Out Contract Inheritance not implemented. Rest is either ironing out the corner cases of codegen, or working on some fancy GCC addition.

Does LLVM still need 64bit calling convention support?
