We're all learning how to use github, but by most accounts it seems to be the best available system for the diverse group of people who work on it.

Dear Walter,

I went to the github and try to download the source, I found that the latest version on github is the old version.

for example:

druntime - Downloads: dmd-2.042
Phobos -   Downloads: phobos-2.046
DMD -      Downloads: dmd-2.046

I think the actural latest version of D should be 2.051.

Why github can not showing the 2.051 version(dmd, phobos,
druntime, and so on.) ?

I think it is because the tags were never done properly on svn, either.

If you grab the source with git, it's the latest version. I don't know how the downloads stuff works though - but as you say, it doesn't have the latest version. It will likely take some time to sort out all of the kinks of the transition though. From the looks of it, very few of the dmd/druntime/Phobos devs have experience with github.

Are we supposed to be able to access this repository? When I enter the address in the web browser it redirects to the github start page. If I try to clone it I get this error:

fatal: https://github.com/organizations/D-Programming-Language /info/refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

That links to the "organization" D-Programming-Language on github.

https://github.com/D-Programming-Language is the link to the list of repositories. You'll need to go the individual repository for a project to find the URL to use to clone that repository.

BTW, what about the backend in the DMD repository. Is is ok now to just fork the repository?

There's a big inviting 'Fork' button for that at the top of each page which duplicates the repository in your own account (without any warning I might add). So whether it's okay or not, I'm pretty sure most people who do not closely read the license will assume it is. A Github free account is meant for 'open-source' projects after all.

It's still possible to add the tags (see
http://progit.org/book/ch2-6.html "Tagging Later") but we'd have to
know the commits used for the releases. I guess there's
no easy way to figure out which commits were used for the releases?
