- Create the D Language Foundation

What exactly is this idea about, can you elaborate a bit?

Glad you asked. We currently have a few expenses associated with D operation. Walter and I prefer to be discreet about such, but some of them are fairly obvious and non-negligible - such as DConf.

Such expenses have been covered by the kickstarter campaign (for DConf 2013) and now are going out of Walter's and my pocket. We've increased expenditures lately, to good effect, and would like to continue to do so but of course without becoming homeless in the process :o). It's become clear to us that the best way to scale things up is a formal framework, and a foundation is a commonly-used mechanism for such.

A foundation would provide a fair and transparent way for us to accept contributions, small and large, from interested parties, and apply them to further understanding and adoption of D.

By the way I have forwarded the information that something is brewing to Sociomantic leadership - will report if they would want to participate in it one way or another :)
