digitalmars.D.learn - Compiler version "dirty"

When I enter `dmd --version`, it says:
   DMD64 D Compiler v2.095.1-dirty
What should the "dirty" mean? To me, it seems looks something 
went wrong somewhere.

It means someone made a mistake when preparing the release. Probably harmless.

This comes from `git describe --dirty` and indicates there were uncommitted changes in the repo when the release was built. This would raise red flags if seen in a commercial setting and looks a bit unprofessional but it is most likely harmless. Probably one of the build scripts or unittests are polluting the repo.
