digitalmars.D - Now what happens to the "What's left for 1.0" discussions and stuff?

1. Pending Peeves is still, according to itself, a list of "issues that 
people feel need to address, hopefully in time for D 1.0".

2. Then there was d1.0blocker, only 4 out of 15 nominees fixed and 0 out 
of 17 nominations answered.

3. In the same area is the Bugzilla tracker to "Get the documentation 
cleaned up for 1.0", which seemed to be a little more successful, with 
11 issues fixed out of 17.

I suppose part of the trouble is that, back in those days, quite a few 
of us expected 1.0 to be a milestone from a practical and not just 
symbolic POV.  And now we have a new question of which major version 
issues should be nominated to block now and what we should get the 
documentation cleaned up for now.

Any ideas?

How many of these are DMD issues as opposed to D issues? Just scanning through the list, none of them seem to be issues with D its self. Mostly DMD and the docs. I have always felt that DMD won't be ready for 1.0 until a while after D 1.0 is officially declared.
 
 Any ideas?

It is not clear to me whether D 1.0 meant freezing the spec or having a
production-grade DMD. I really hoped that DMD would fix at least bug #621
(http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=621) for DMD 1.0, because
the Linux version is practically unusable with bugs like this one.
