Unfortunately we won't participate in GSoC this year. The
decision was not surprising - our application has been rejected.
Sadly there are lots of things we could have done better. Our
application has been a low-priority side job for Walter and
myself and as such its quality has suffered greatly.
GSoC applications are a great example of things where one or
more community members can have a large impact on D's well
being by offloading a parallelizable work from the two of us.
Please consider taking a leadership role for GSoC 2015.
In 2013 KolibriOS, an open-source Operation System written in
Assembly, applied for GSoC and was rejected as well. They went to
Kickstarter, and raised money for their own SoC:
Should we try doing the same for D?
