digitalmars.D - The announcements are lacking something...

When I look through the announcements newsgroup, I see that there's a lot happening in the world of D. Development for the language has picked up a lot of pace in recent years. However, looking through the subject matter, I notice a common theme: Libraries for D, Compilers for D, IDEs / Plugins for D, Literature for D, News about D... That's all fine, but there's one thing that is desperately needed, which is announcements that aren't about things "for D". We need more news about projects that are written in D but not for D, e.g. flint, Facebook's C++ linter written in D. I know there are people out there using D for production, but it's a bit depressing that we rarely see this type of news in the D newsgroups. I'm sure we'll hear about some of these projects during the upcoming DConf, and I encourage those that do to post announcements and write articles about their projects around this time. And in general, if you, or anybody you know, is writing a project in D, please share the news with the world!
