I have no ideas, it seems to me it could have been solved a long

this does not happen?

- std.containers existed before the allocators - std.experimental.allocator * is in a ["freezed" state](https://forum.dlang.org/post/730a99d2-1043-19b7-551a-c6f57 90f422 erdani.org). it was asked not to use anymore * is experimental, so you cannot make non-experimental part of the library depends on it Alternatively you can use [emsi containers](https://code.dlang.org/packages/emsi_containers), which are based on the allocators.

Right now it is not passing its test suite. Amin Yahyaabadi has recently been very good with the help of WebFreak and replaced the testsuite from Travis to Github Actions. However it is failing due to needing to update stdx-allocator and a bug with the unrolled linked list.
