Nah, you don't want to do that.  Once bug complaints are shuffled off to
their own corner, people start ignoring that corner and we wind up back
where we started. :-P

Spoiler: I'm just another random D user with a bit of spare time. *You*
can probably contribute to fixing bugs in D too.[*] If everyone would
take action instead of waiting around for somebody else to do it, we'd
probably be in a better place today.

([*] If you have a working knowledge of D, you probably know enough to
be able to fix bugs in druntime or Phobos. Or even implement a new
feature or two.  IME, they are orders of magnitude more readable than
the majority of standard libraries out there (I tried reading glibc
source code once -- never again!).  DMD is a little trickier, depending
on where a problem is, but it's still a more pleasant experience than,
say, firefox source code or something.  Or, God forbid, gcc. That one I
don't even dare touch with a 50-foot pole.)


I think Debian's doing something wrong, `apt-get install pesticide', doesn't seem to remove the bugs on my system! -- Mike Dresser
