I do not have access to a Windows box or VM, and to be honest, I would
really rather not. This means the D tool for SCons is being developed
and tested on Debian Linux and OS X only. This means Windows is untested
and uncared for. A corollary is that the D tool in SCons will never be
updated, because the Windows tests are failing. Thus there is a need for
a person who has access to a Windows machine or two, some knowledge of
Python, an interest in D development and D software build, and a
willingness to collaborate with me. Oh and must be willing to use
Mercurial.

=46rom what I can see the current D tool fails the tests but this has only
been noticed after a number of years because no SCons CI server had had
D installed until recently, and I never tested on Windows at all.  This
means that the most likely action for the SCons developers is to pull
all D support. This is not good for SCons and not good for D.

The need is to fix the new stuff on Windows.

Clearly for testing in an ideal world we need a Windows with no D, one
with each of GDC, LDC and DMD alone, and then all the various
combinations. But what is needed immediately is to test with no D and
some D so as to get the functional tests not to fail.

Point me at some failing tests!
