Point came up in a discussion in the learn group that fixedpoint
arithmetic would be quite useful, especially in the financial
domain. There does exist a github library for this - it looked
reasonably thought-through, but I haven't used it as when I tried
it didn't compile with the version of dmd I was using.
Sadly, I'm not in a position either to write it myself, or to
have the code written and open-sourced for the foreseeable
future, as it's not yet something I need, although might be later.
More generally, does it make sense to have a suggested project
registry for those who would like to contribute to Phobos and
have the skill to do so but aren't sure what to work on ?
Projects could be added after discussion and approval.
At the very least, it surely must make sense to have some kind of
place for that to avoid duplication of effort (something that has
happened before). Maybe a way for people to find each other
outside forums (since people don't always see messages involved
in the community participates actively on forums).
