Well, then we're about to reach the point when it's ripe to do that, because 
D1 is about to no longer be supported. With the beta for 2.061 (whenever that 
happens), we can adjust how we do the beta process to properly use branches, 
and then we can adjust how we deal with stable and development branches of D2 
for future releases.

git macros are only good if you know what you're doing. If you don't and 
something with the macros break, you're lost. BTw, git is not hard to learn.

Haven't we already agreed on this, that last time this discussion came 
up. Someone volunteered to keep a fork of the D projects and slowly 
merge changes. The releases should of course be based on this fork.

We said the same thing before the 2.060 release. And most likely before 
the 2.059 release as well.

Soo....  Theoretically Speaking.

If I were to create an Organization on Github for the management of 
stable D versions, would you work on it?

Yes, theoretically speaking. Unfortunately I don't have the time to do that.

So the plans of a stable releases branch never came into fruition?

Phobos and druntime are also in there.

Right now I'm just trying to figure out how to organize it.
