digitalmars.D - Please provide a channel for D ecosystem ideas

Hi,

the GSOC wiki page inspired me to write this request. If I have 
an idea how the improve the D ecosystem but cannot do it myself, 
there is at the moment no good channel to provide this idea to 
someone other in the D community. Maybe someone other is 
searching for an opportunity to help the D ecosystem but does not 
know how.


- Implement support for D in another tool: E.g. it would be great 
if someone could create a Jenkins D plugin similar to 
https://wiki.jenkins.io/display/JENKINS/NodeJS+Plugin

- Maybe you do not even have to develop something but convince 
other projects / companies to integrate D into their tools: 
Fortify, Sonatype OSS, Cloud Foundry, ...

- Implement something in D

It would be really great if there would be a place someone can 
easily put an idea and other can see the ideas and can pick one.

The channel could be a new group "Ecosystem projects" in the 
forum, a Trello board, ...
My preference would be a github repository with an issue per idea.

What do you think?

Kind regards
André

I think this is a great idea. Is there some way to do voting with github or trello so that we can see the features that people want the most?

In the past, dsource used to serve this purpose. It was during the Tango vs Phobos times, but there were so many projects being born, each project had a separate webforum where people could discuss stuff. I feel like we are missing something now. Gtkd has its own forums, vibed has its own, most other projects are on github where discussion is hidden behind issues section. I think wiki could work, or just a subsection of this forum here.
