Marketing or PR to appeal to business majors and chief technology officers. Maybe hiring a firm, maybe as a community wiki-like effort.

This is what I imagine a page for business majors would look like:

Fire your CMake build consultant!
Save costs on compilation farm!
You won't need that one dude who can do C++ templates!
Hire Java and C# developers and a senior C++ developer instead of all C++ developers, to save money, since C++ developers are expensive!
Invest in technology today. Dlang takes longer to start a project with, but your team will be more productive later on!

Product manager:

Test a version of your code every hour, instead of every day!

Chief technology officer: (cool tech attitude)

Walter Bright began a revolution in C++ compilers with the Zortech C++ compiler.
Andrei Alexandrescu did filler filler filler filler, sitting on the 8-person C++ committee at one point.
Where are they now? They work on Dlang, a modern language.

Junior developers:

If there is a job listing with Dlang on it, it's probably a sign they care about technology and technical excellence, because Dlang is a minority language.

Basically, I imagine a big page with arguments for us and our language. noble and

Why would D take longer to start with in a project? Given that the project doesn't inherit anything from previous projects I would say that the startup time of D is the same as with other languages.

Needing to rewrite C++ headers.
Needing to set up a WASM environment.
