digitalmars.D.learn - github copilot and dlang

Has someone tried github copilot (https://copilot.github.com/) 
with dlang? Access to the preview could be requested and, I 
think, main dlang team members could bypass the waitlist easily.

I suspect that the "low" volume of dlang code (used to train 
OpenAI) compared to other languages could impact in the support 
(if there is any).  Anyway, it could be really interesting to see 
how Copilot faces templates, traits, ...

I was wondering the same, but I haven't gotten the chance to try it - still on wait list since last week. On the topic of GH waitlists, I'm still waiting for access to their Codespaces feature since December of last year. I'd love to build a codespace template for D, along the lines of the setup-dlang GH action.
