Say thank you to Iain, Mathias, Vladimir, and Martin.

This will make D better. More details to come.

Very well done!

I do hope this isn't the end, because things like bindings really 
shouldn't be in the dmd repository.

Does this mean that druntime for LDC and GDC were also moved into the same repo? Same branch?

I'm ignorant. Why is this significant?

This is not something a user is going to be affected by. But it will make it much easier for the compiler/druntime devs to do work. DMD and druntime are very strictly coupled and sometimes modifying one requires changes in the other. That lead to situations where it was practically impossible to integrate changes without temporarily breaking the CI. Moreover, it was a pain to bisect bugs that were affected by both druntime/dmd changes.

Thank you for the elucidation! I might be wrong, but some time ago, there was talk of deprecating druntime or something to that effect, and I wondering whether this was step in that direction, but it appears that is not the case.

No, there is no talk about deprecating druntime. However, work is being done to templatize druntime as much as possible so that it becomes a pay-as-you-go library.
