Not a certificate, but a receipt with all the information you need for tax deductions.

Just to let this pop up again :-)

The campaign (https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NDUwNTY=)
is now at $764 given from 23 supporters.

=> With the new average of ~$33.2, we need another 67 supporters to reach the $3000 goal.

Very good!

The campaign (https://www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/NDUwNTY=)
just received a big push:

Aaron Sanchez Donation $250 12/03/18
Jason Briggs Donation & Mailing list $500 12/03/18

"D Lang is incredible let's all donate more."

This deserves a big thank you!

We are now at: $1,614 Raised of $3,000 Goal from 27 supporters.

This has lifted the average to app $60 and only the need of another 23 giving this amount.

Now I am convinced, that the missing amount will be in in time.

So Mike, you may start to prepare the next funding goal...

You could do a PR to https://github.com/dlang/dlang.org/blob/master/foundation/donate.dd You've probably got a better Idea of what to do for that than I do (also I can't approve my own PRs)

I just want this topic to stay on top, so I am giving the updated numbers:
Now we are at

        $2,364 Raised of $3,000 Goal from 45 supporters.

This makes an average of: $53 / donor and means we need an other 12 supporters.

This campaign will end in 43 day, so the question after app. 50% is, what next?
Will we start collecting for something else or should we first try to extend the job of our pull request manager?

I would love to have a campaign to increase compilation speed for std.regex and std.format...

You could defer the generation of utf-tables to runtime, which should yield some improvement. But I'll measure the reasons for slowness again and post em.

Thanks Martin for the reminder. From my observations of the activities on github it seems like Nicholas Wilson is doing an excellent job :-)

I spent the last couple of hours trying to hunt down the performance cost in std.regex.

Its seems to be caused by std.uni. When I say caused by, I mean pretty much 100% of the slowness is happening there. It gets a little worse, the slow parts? Yeah they are being called directly and they are marked package. Something is off about this.
