The monthly DLF meeting this month took place on June 25. It lasted a little over an hour-and-a-half. We discussed a number of topics which, as always, led to notes for further discussion in future meetings. Walter, Atila, Andrei, Razvan, Max, and I attended (no I did not leave out Ali by mistake like I did last month; he really couldn't be there this time). The topics that led to some sort of actionable result: --- The vision document is almost ready. I'm currently waiting for a description of the ImportC endgame, after which I'll work with Razvan to flesh out the full document and publish it somewhere visible (dlang.org or the wiki, perhaps). Prior to the meeting, there was some discussion among a few people regarding the strategy for Phobos v2 and work that had previously been done. At the moment, Andrei and Atila feel the previous work is not the right direction. Atila is going to experiment with an approach he favors, though some potential issues were raised at the meeting. We'll see what his experiment turns up. The PR for the forking GC that Francesco Mecca worked on for SAoC 2018 is still open. We would like to get it merged and have someone in mind to champion it. I will ask this person if he is interested and able to take on the task. (No names unless he accepts.) https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/2604 We had a discussion about stack allocation limits, mostly arising from this Bugzilla issue: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17566 As per Walter's recent comment in that thread, he asserts that stack allocations beyond 4k should be rejected. Max's implementation of the Named Arguments DIP is coming along. Walter expressed that the final implementation should not be independent of struct initializers, i.e., one should be lowered to the other, or they should share the same implementation. Razvan is almost ready to start testing the Bugzilla gamification system. We're looking to launch it in late July or early August, at which point we are looking to have a DConf Sprint so that we can award prizes to some of our bugfixers at DConf Online in November. At DConf Online, we'll have keynotes from Walter and Atila as expected, along with an Ask us Anything! session. I've encouraged the rest of the DLF team to consider submitting talks this year. We have very nearly hit 1000 subscribers on YouTube. We will do so at some point in the next few months, at which time we'll be eligible to apply to monetize the channel (we already meet the watch hours requirement). I anticipate that, over time, this will be a nice way to raise money. I really want to start publishing more content on our channel outside of DConf. You may have heard me mention before that I want to start a 'D Community Talks' playlist (where we will offer a $300 bounty for quality content from community members, as we do for guest posts on the D Blog). I've also asked the DLF team to come up with other ideas for content (interviews, developer vlogs, etc). --- That's pretty much it. As I said above, the discussion (as usual) did branch into topics that didn't result in anything actionable, but some of it may well in the future. I don't want to say much about those topics unless and until they become concrete targets of focus. For now, they're essentially just brainstorming. Our next meeting will be on the 4th Friday of July. This will be a quarterly meeting in which representatives from the industry will participate. Those meetings begin by giving the industry folks the floor, after which the DLF folks (and any of the industry reps who'd like to) hang around for the monthly DLF meeting.

Please consider to talk at one of the next meetings about a special but regular sponsoring membership for DLF. Goal: To get a strong and stable base of funding. (Many small but official supporters versus one big player)
