I believe it's possible to strike a balance between binary 
compatibility
between upgrades, source compatibility for .di files, and 
programmer
convenience. Why doesn't that DIP have its own Pull Request on 
GitHub?

It should be in the DIP I would think, but it appears not to be. It says that the DIP is in community review round 1. Mike? -Steve

The link in this thread is to the revision that was under Community Review, not the one in master. It's already gone through Final Review. Although, I just realized I forgot to update it once the Final Review ended. That's done now. The current revision: https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/blob/master/DIPs/DIP1030.md

No. It's in the queue for Formal Assessment.

Thanks for clarification. And what is the state of the formal Assessment, where is it logged?

I don't know what you mean. As a general rule, there is only one DIP in Formal Assessment at a time. You can see the status of all DIPs under review here: https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/blob/master/DIPs/README.md Currently, DIP 1029 is in Formal Assessment. I actually expect to make an announcement on its disposition before Saturday. I'll move 1030 into Formal Assessment sometime thereafter, though it won't be immediately. There was a controversy over the DIP 1028 decision last month: https://forum.dlang.org/post/rwjxbgsauknjjrvousti forum.dlang.org TL:DR, should a language maintainer be evaluating his own DIP? Because of that, we've slowed things down a bit. I won't move 1030 forward until we resolve that question, but I expect that to happen very soon.
