I think Debian Sid is still on LDC 1.8, is there a way of helping getting a release of 1.10?

The maintainers are listed here, they're active on github:

https://packages.debian.org/sid/ldc

I believe they're always looking for help with that package, should be easy to contact them.

Help is always wanted, LDC at the moment just wasn't updated due to lack of time of the Debian D Maintainers.
Anyone can help with that though, even if you are no Debian Developer / Maintainer.
See the LDC details page[0] for an overview of the current packaging in Debian. The D team maintains all its packages on Debian's Gitlab infrastructure, where contributing is quite simple. See [1] for that.
The LDC packaging isn't the easiest thing to modify though, so some experience with Debian packaging and package maintenance in Git is very helpful to work on it.
