Hello!

After exploring preliminary stuff in regard to the feasibility to
adopt D as our next project's programming language, it's time to check
about tools/editors support...

So, I'm a little bit surprise what is the reason the newest entry on=20

I'm using d-mode.el everyday and it's of good quality. 2007 is the creation date, it was last updated one year later (see http://www.billbaxter.com/etc/d-mode.el). Bill and I have modified it a couple of times and I think I messed with mine a bit without committing (I think I added a keyword or so). You should be in good shape with it. Andrei

 So putting a Mercurial repository with this source code on dsource.org
 is the thing that is agreed?  I guess this means making a new project?

Well, not really agreed – recently, a few large projects (LDC, QtD) have migrated their sources away from DSource because of the constant stability troubles with DSource…

gitoriouse is good and open source, you need use git as vcs
They are bitbucket with mercurial but the service has often a problem, less than
dsource i agree.

Grrr.... (minor rant in next paragraph.) Why is it that programmers can even think that a wiki is a suitable place to put code and patches? Surely the only sane place for code is in a version control repository? So let us assume that a Bazaar branch, Mercurial repository or Git repository gets created to hold this stuff, allowing for an Emacs 23 branch, where is the right place to host it, Launchpad, BitBucket, GitHub? =20 --=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 russel.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder

Dsource.org?

It seems dsource.org has a prejudice against Bazaar :-( So putting a Mercurial repository with this source code on dsource.org is the thing that is agreed? I guess this means making a new project? --=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 russel.org.uk London SW11 1EN, UK w: www.russel.org.uk skype: russel_winder
