I'm tracking the "master" branch of DMD, as the "merge master
into stable" commits are huge and tend to come with many
Saying that, it has been since 2.093.0-devel since I last did a
sync, and I've only just recently fixed dmd master (again).
Based off of dmd v2.093.1-686-g3a55c54a8 (as of writing, the
current HEAD). Bootstrapped using gdc-9.3.1, and all tests are
passing on x86_64-linux-gnu, but that may not be a good
indication that things are fine, and more testing on other
architectures would be welcome.
Unless your knowledge of git better than mine, and you have a
cleverly crafted git clone command, the best way I know of
fetching the sources is in the following way:
git remote add users/ibuclaw git://gcc.gnu.org/git/gcc.git
git config --replace-all remote.users/ibuclaw.fetch
git fetch users/ibuclaw
git checkout -b gdc-mainline users/ibuclaw/gdc
The assumption is you already know how to build gcc from here.
