What is the state of Calypso? The last release was in 2014. This 
is also the latest tag that was created. Development on master 
stopped in 2018. The most recent commits were on branch. I would 
have missed that from a cursory look at the commit history (you 
have to switch branches to notice!). I don't know when it was 
last sync'ed with LDC. If I wanted to use it, how would I even go 
about that? How do I get a version that is compatible with recent 
versions of D and works / is supported?

My point is: the publicly visible state of the project isn't very 
encouraging for potential users.
