digitalmars.D.announce - The D Language Foundation is now incorporated

We are pleased to announce that the D Language Foundation is now 
incorporated with the state of Washington, USA. The foundation's Board 
of Directors are Walter Bright, Ali Çehreli, and myself.

Our initial administrative meeting will take place on Monday. Agenda 
includes EIN (Employee Identification Number) application, funding, and 
immediate plans for the foundation.

Going forward we're applying for a non-profit status, which is a longer 
process (3-6 months).

We're very excited about the creation of the D Language Foundation and 
we hold high hopes that it will have a strong positive effect on the D 
language and community.

I hope that I can be helpful as admin of Russian community or something like it. At present time we end working at our dlang.ru, for my regret the work on CMS take more then one year, but I hope that it will be open soon. Again very sorry for long promises to open site "in next few weeks" , but it's very hard to do with there is primary job. Andrei, with whom I can talk about dsource.org?

I expect that you're going to get a fair bit of disagreement on that. We've been telling everyone for years that it's full of old stuff that mostly only works with old versions of D (most of it D1) and that it should usually be avoided because of that. Pretty much anything like what it was doing is done on github now. Resurrecting dsource.org would just cause confusion at this point. dsource.org exists only for archival purposes, and IMHO, that's how it should stay. - Jonathan M Davis

I do not think that it's good idea to storage D1 stuff forever. The stuff can be backup to old.dsource.org or so. D need more actual materials then saving retro-stuff.

Regardless of whether dsource.org sticks around as an archive for old projects in the long run, I think that it would be a serious mistake to reuse the URL for anything else. It is already known and has a reputation - and that reputation is _not_ for whatever you might want to use it for now. If you want a new site for D, then come up with a new site. Don't try and recycle an old one that's already well-known for something else and already well-known to be a site that does not contain new material. - Jonathan M Davis

The stories of GoogleCode and Codehaus are that a system set up for CVS/Subversion cannot compete with GitHub and BitBucket in the DVCS- era. Has anyone tried GitLab (was Gitorious)? SourceForge is trying to rework itself, but it is very resource intensive, and this only really viable for an organization with large funds. All the other "forges" that I have been associated with are now either gone or left lying around as archives for historical purposes. dsource.org is not, in my opinion, worth resurrecting to try and compete with GitHub and BitBucket. If there is some non-code-hosting role not fulfilled by dlang.org then maybe, but as it is I would make the notice on the front page of dsource.org much larger and then just let it be.=C2=A0 --=20 Russel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D Dr Russel Winder t: +44 20 7585 2200 voip: sip:russel.winder ekiga.n= et 41 Buckmaster Road m: +44 7770 465 077 xmpp: russel winder.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

From what I've seen, I think it's better than GitHub. Although I haven't really used it for an actual project yet.

I've used both GitHub and GitLab quite a lot and I prefer GitHub. It feels more polished overall. But what's nice about GitLab is that it's open source and I really like GitLab CI, which is bundled. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Not really. If you have a .edu email address, you get an unlimited Bitbucket account for free. It's popular with academics for that reason. No setup and no heavy hardware requirements to deal with.

The question of an official D blog arose recently, so I posted here, and Mike Parker said that he would like to work on that. Apparently (before I was using D) he did something similar. http://forum.dlang.org/post/suemsfczrpmrzywdbcln forum.dlang.org The more people willing to work on it the better IMO. But please work together to avoid what seems to happen in some form with every initiative of this community.

I think that it's going to need to be made clear what it even means to be either a member or an officer. And does any of that relate to the development teams for the various d-programming-language projects on github? While having an official, legal entity for D aside from Digital Mars is certainly a big step, I'm not sure that it's at all clear what it really means or how it will affect D aside from the fact that it's an entity to which people can donate money and which will then spend that money towards the betterment of D. Certainly, none of that is clear to me, and I expect that it's the same for many others (and much of it may be completely undecided at this point, but these are details that are going to need to be clear to the D community at some point and which aren't necessarily particularly clear right now). - Jonathan M Davis

Thanks for the inquiry. We've had our first organizational meeting during which we decided to proceed with creating an EIN (Employer Identification Number), which we have since acquired: 47-5352856. Also we decided to proceed with creating a bank account. I'm currently investigating choosing an appropriate bank, preferably United Bank of Do Not Rip Me Off. Suggestions welcome. We'll also proceed with inquiring for an accountant to deal with foundation's yearly taxes. To address your question: there are currently three officers: Walter Bright (President), Ali ehreli (Secretary), and myself (Vice President and Treasurer). A member is a supporter and possibly sponsor of the Foundation. We're considering several membership kinds (e.g. honorific, student, individual, corporate) and levels, some that entail a sponsorship, and some that involve no monetary involvement. An officer is an administrator of the Foundation. We have been advised independently by our attorney and by a different foundation creator that we should keep officers to a minimum, three being the sweet spot. More officers means more politics. So we're moving forward with three officers for the time being. Of course the foundation can have several employees that are not officers; we hope to get there soon. Thanks, Andrei
