Hello! I use service devdocs.io for some technologies. And I think that I able to add D to this service. I've read the project's wiki (https://github.com/Thibaut/devdocs/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md) and see the next:

Important: the documentation's license must permit alteration, redistribution and commercial use, and the documented software must be released under an open source license.

Due to this I get the question. Do the licence of D's documentaion and the licence of D allow to add the D's library documentation to devdocs.io?

Thanks. Sorry if my english is not clear.

Well as phobos source code comments is the documentation for standard library and it's licensed under Boost license (https://github.com/dlang/phobos/blob/master/LICENSE_1_0.txt), I think yes.

Ok. Also I see it on the page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_free_and_open-source_software_licenses

I hope it will not block me to contribute D's docs. Thanks a lot!

The Boost license is actually quite readable by humans (see below).

Please let us know if you run into any problems with the integration. Devdocs integration is on our radar [1], but time is inherently limited :/
-> thanks a lot for pushing this and we are more than happy to help if you run into troubles.

Hi,

Did you manage to make progress on this issue? As mentioned this is in my focus as well and I will be able to allocate some time to help.

Btw @ others there is an open Trello card at the devdocs.io board which allows voting:
