Why not volunteer to handle the FreeBSD package builds?
I have access to FreeBSD machine(s) and willing to lend a hand and spend some
time on this.
What is needed to do the FreeBSD package build?
(Currently I just do a git clone/pull of the github dlang stuff and build it to
get the master or any other branch I want)
Were do I find the build and package instructions?
That's part of handling it - figuring out all that stuff :-) I don't know what
Is running regressions tests required before releasing a build package?
Yes, and the regression suite is part of the github repository. Alternatively,
you could talk to
Brad and get the actual binaries from the autotester.
What is the packages release (and build) frequency?
It's a bit erratic, but generally once every 3 months or so.
DMD1 and DMD2 (and GDC) seems to be in the FreeBSD ports collection. Why can't
those be used to buid the packages?
Building it is less of an issue than getting a FreeBSD install.
I really do intend to get the package builder producing bundles (not for every single build, that'd
be.. scary). It's on my todo list. Maybe I'll dedicate my christmas vacation to that project.
