           Summary: Need to automate updating of std.compiler
           Product: D
           Version: 1.014
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

On more than one occasion, the information in std.compiler has slipped out of

The very nature of std.compiler means that it _must_ be constantly kept up to
date with the real compiler version.  As long as it isn't, it's as bad as
non-existent, if not worse.  Therefore, Walter needs an automated means of
updating std.compiler to the current DMD version.

The compiler version in mars.c, and therefore in the output from dmd when run
with no arguments, manages to stay up to date.  Is this updated manually or

- If automatically, then the solution is to make the program/script that does
it update std.compiler as well while it's at it.
- If manually, then the solution is to write a program/script that updates
both, and replace the versionly ritual of updating it in mars.c with a ritual
of running this program.
