 What would other important web sites be?

I just found www.rosettacode.org, I don't know if it's important but it's pretty nice and already has ton's of examples in D. Here is the todo list for D: http://www.rosettacode.org/wiki/Tasks_not_implemented_in_D

I just did 3 of the missing items (ackermann, array init, pointers/references). I encourage others to pick a few to write as well. It's a really long list of missing items...

Incidentally, that page is updated automatically every four hours, so it pretty much always has the current list of missing tasks. There are instructions on the page for if you think an item on the list doesn't really belong there. (Such as if the task is impossible or wholly inappropriate in D.) If you follow those instructions, the item you're concerned about will be removed from the main list of "unimplemented tasks" and put in a list of "omitted tasks" at the bottom of the page. (This prevents a malicious or unambitious individual from hiding large swaths of the site from contributors specializing in a given language.) The bot that manages all of this sits at: http://rosettacode.org/wiki/User:ImplSearchBot If there's an issue with the list that's not addressed by the omit mechanism, leave a note on the bot's talk page (or email me directly), and I'll see what I can do about it. Also, we use GeSHi for our syntax highlighting, and GeSHi supports linkifying keywords that it recognizes. If any of you cares to, feel free to send me an updated highlighting script with whatever changes and fixes you want done to it. We occasionally send our changes upstream to the GeSHi maintainers, where it usually gets incorporated into their core. (I'll try to check back here on occasion, but my newsreading ability is somewhat limited due to my mobility and the fact that digitalmars doesn't get indexed by Google Groups.)
