One need not be skilled to help out. Identifying bugs and providing minimal code and steps to reproduce is usually a good start.

I originally uploaded gdc as version 2, but the problems with it outweighed the positives (that and it broke every D software package in the Debian and Ubuntu repository), so got round to sorting out (kinda) the big show-stopper and switched it back to D1.

Am not opposed to having a separately named gdc2 package in a ppa, however. That can be arranged.
