Hi everyone,

The D packages for ArchLinux has been orphaned since Dicebot stepped down as the maintainer and no one else stepped up. So I decided to step up and apply to become a Trusted User, and I got accepted yesterday[1]. So from now on I will be the one who maintains all the D packages (in the [community] repo), and it will be my job to fix them if they break.

If you haven't heard of me before (which is probable because I mostly lurk), my name is Dan, I'm 21 years old and I'm the developer of PowerNex[2], a D kernel/OS, and I livestream coding at Twitch[3].

Currently only dmd, dtools, ldc and lib{,l}phobos are in the [community] repo. I would like to move over dub, dcd, dscanner and dfmt (some of these were dropped from [community] due to being orphaned). You guys can help by voting on AUR packages that you want to be moved to [community].

Feel free to ping me on anything that is related to packaging or the ArchLinux packages.
I hope I can maintain ArchLinux as a great environment to use D.

Ways of contacting me:
- arch@vild.io
- wild on freenode (I lurk in #d, #archlinux, #powernex)
- Vild on github
- Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bMZk9Q4

Thanks
- Dan

Just wanted to say that this Discord server is a very nice D sub-community, and Discord itself is more impressive than your typical IRC alternative.

That's great. Do you want to maintain the package for DStep as well as Dicebot did?

I could do that, but what I can see Dicebot still maintains it
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dstep/
But it could just be that he has forgot to orphan it.
