Hi DlangScience

I've setup D prototypes for the CDF (Common Data Format) file reading/writing library.  Since it's mostly just basic D prototypes for a C library the module's name is deimos.cdf and can be found here: https://github.com/das-developers/deimos.cdf

I'm attempting to get the repository hosted within a github organization run by the Goddard Space Physics Data facility.  If the SPDF declines to host the repo, could it find a home in the DlangScience organization?  I'd be happy to sign up to maintain it.  I didn't know that your group existed when I wrote the module or would have contacted you before work began.

Instead of responding to this message, please use the Discussion section for deimos.cdf, at least temporarily anyway.

Thanks,

Good luck!

Interestingly Github flags this repo as a "C" repo , with the balance of code tilting slightly (>51%) in favor of C (perhaps headers), compared to D. I wonder to what degree this affects overall stats of # Dlang repos on Github?

Let's discuss it here:

https://github.com/orgs/dlang-community/teams/science/discussions

@wilzbach is the maintainer of the group.

this can be "fixed" using a .gitattribute file with the following content:

```
*.h linguist-detectable=false
*.c linguist-detectable=false
```

There must be an easier way, if anyone know a cleaner way for doing that, please let me know!

Sounds good to me, but the link above returns a 404, could be a temporary error.  Maybe I'm supposed to join a team first?

Russy, thanks for the tip.  I've added a .gitattributes file.  Seems appropriate here since the .h files are just included for documentation and reproducibility.

That explains the 404.  I'm not a member of the D community hub and am not yet competent enough in the language to belong to such an organization.

Does this [hiding to non org members] really help D's visibility and adoption? What sorts of things are discussed that do not benefit from openness? For example, I am a bona fide scientist using Dlang, but had no idea dlang-science was even an active group (I was aware of the org, and repos, but assumed it was not very active)

As far as I know its not actively used. Both teams and the discussion feature Github offers them.

And yes I did try to make it public, that wasn't an option.
