FTR, I filed https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ldc/+bug/1570006 - if we are lucky, this still has a chance to go in.


That's great, thank you very much.

As for further dub stuff, it is important that https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/dub/issues/811 is addressed, so we can build software using dub without downloading stuff from the internet. Btw, since D doesn't know traditional headers like C/C++, how would I link against a library without having the full sourcecode present somewhere?

Is there anything wrong -- in principle -- with (for now) treating open-source D libraries much like the various Boost C++ libraries, which AFAICT are almost entirely header-based?

I ask because so far as I can tell that would work around the immediate problems of compiler incompatibilities, it would not add any extra work compiler-wise that's not already there with dub's current way of doing things, and for template-heavy D code (which is quite a lot of code), it makes no difference, since that would have to be available in .d or .di files anyway.
