digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 16361] New: Exclude other OS folders from a OS relase


          Issue ID: 16361
           Summary: Exclude other OS folders from a OS relase
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: installer
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: greensunny12 gmail.com

If one installs dmd on Linux via the installer script or downloads the release
directly, he will the following folders:

- freebsd
- linux
- osx
- solaris
- windows

Imho that's pretty confusing to newbies (it was too at least) and we should
exclude those nearly empty directories from the releases.
Also using the folder `linux` in a linux release is a bit pointless, but I
expect that changing this might break a lot :/
