Following Brian Schott Announce [1] about the migration of his projects to the dlang-community, I'm pleased to announce that the most popular repository from Ferdinand Majerech are now also hosted there.

- D-YAML, a YAML parser and emitter for D (native D implementation)
is at https://github.com/dlang-community/D-YAML

- harbored-mod, a D documentation generator based on harbored
is at https://github.com/dlang-community/harbored-mod

So far we pushed the commits done in several forks and the two projects are up to date, tested by TravisCI, buildable with either make or DUB.

Note about D-Yaml: People who forked D-Yaml for their projects are encouraged to push their change to dlang-community and give up their fork !

Nice, I have wait so many months until I decided to fork yamkeys because of d-yaml. Now I can delete it thanks. This makes my live easier.  This is something I want to propose many times, that there is something like dlang-community. Btw. is there some more info about it. Because I miss it somehow

It's an organization that was formed to avoid exactly this issue of needing to fork popular repositories all the time. As Basile mentioned this means that instead of waiting for months a bug fix can be merged and released within minutes and thus actual development and improvement can happen - instead of wasting a lot of time recreating the same fix or being annoyed broken dependencies.
Due to being quite young, there's much public visibility or information yet.
However, if you have a project that you would like to be part of this org or just want to talk to us, please feel free to open an issue here:

AFAIK, the idea was born when we (André/stonemaster, Sebastian/wilzbach and me) had issues with dlang-tour [0] when DMD 2.072.0 was released and become the default on Travis-CI and I had to fork D-YAML [1] and other project(s) in order to get my fixes merged [2].

Sebastian:
> Maybe it's not a bad idea to have a couple of important D packages like this one a community namespace, s.t. it doesn't depend on one maintainer?

Me:
> I've also thought about that. Maybe a common github organization where all prominent members of the community have merge rights, though individual projects would still be driven by their authors. Similar to phobos experimental, but not tied to dmd releases, and with more lax requirements for entry and respectively a bit less guarantees.

But most importantly, Sebastian actually created the github organization and started the discussion [4], [5].

BTW, forgot to say: thanks to Ferdinand for giving the ownership to the organization and thanks to those who continued to maintain the forks, notably Sociomantic D developers for harbored-mod and ZombineDev for D-YAml.
