Perhaps we can create a channel on the dlang Slack for proofreading articles and blog posts, so that more people can have a chance to review an article before publishing.

This is great, thanks!

I just checked, and it's available in Debian stable, so most distros should have it by now.

Any dlang slack member can invite new members by their email (I think even temporary email addresses are fine). On which email shall I send you an invite?

I was missing this feature often, I'm glad I found it recently ;)

Yes, I think it's safe to use on Linux nowadays. In the worst case a user may need to upgrade their coreutils. I just mention this because a teammate was still on Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04 so he had to upgrade [1].

D lang is life! I used Python for scripting, but D lang is better, I don't need install interpreter for execute it. I hope someay fobos have same support as Python library.
