As part of a larger program to support the open source community,

We're still tweaking the best allocation of sums to bugs depending on
their importance and difficulty. I will update this list once I've
allocated the entire budget, likely before the end of day today.
Beyond the money involved, this is a gesture of good faith, confidence,
and investment in the future of D. Let's respond in kind!
