As most of you guys know, a lot of projects on dsource have been
discontinued or even never started.
wouldn't it be best for everyone to add an archive section to the projects
page and move there all discontinued projects?
it may not sound such a big issue but it was one of the things that made me
scared of D. a lot of projects but nearly none up to date

And maybe add some "featured" projects that have been thoroughly tested like
gtkd,...

There's been a lot of work done on a new-and-improved dsoruce, and it got to a point where it was pretty much ready to launch. That was about a couple years ago. I've kinda lost faith that it's ever going to get updated... :(

 I agree. Unfortunately, the site's maintainer, Brad Anderson, doesn't
 appear
 to be active with D anymore :(

"There are lot's of discontinued projects listed on that site. Something must be done!" - "Sure, but the web site is discontinued." No offense, it is satire. :)

well that's too bad
an improved dsource would be a great step forward. D is already little-known
(relative) having a site advertising a lot of dead projects and with a dead
forum isn't going to help a lot :)

Maybe the active projects need moving to another site... -=mike=-

well thats an awkward situation: an abondonned site with a lot of abondonned
projects...
maybe someone knows the site-owner and can ask him to give ownership to
someone else(preferably still active )?

I'm always ready to do some cleaning up.
