Razvan Nitu, one of the foundation's two Pull Request Managers funded by Symmetry Investments, talks about the work he's been doing and two initiatives intended to motivate contributions to the core D projects.

I've also shared it to the D subreddit if anyone wants to follow or participate in any discussion that arises there:

Ths emphasizes the fact that druntime needs more love.

That conclusion is given along with these numbers:

dmd phobos druntime
open bug reports 3000 900 300
Pull requests / month 85 130 30
contributors last month 10 5 4

To me, that looks like dmd needs more love, given the vast amount of bugs (3000) compared to druntime (300).

We should make a list of the things we need to do, in order of importance. Not just for solving problems, but for raising them,and who give good advice.They are rewarded according to their importance and excellence.
D needs a list, just like buglist,'todolist'.
Everyone takes a task from the todolist, completes it, and receives reward.

The opened druntime PRs do not necessarily fix any issues or add new features, but rather contain minor refactorings of small, unreported, bug fixes. So I would say that there is no relationship betweem the number of bugs of a component and the number of PRs that are opened.

The fundamental reason why dmd has more opened bugs is because it is the oldest codebase among the 3. Also, some bugs are reported as belonging to dmd when they're actually druntime bugs, because it is difficult to properly identify the component if you are not a contributor. I have changed the component part of many dmd bugs to druntime over time.
