I can ask, but given that the Xenial final freeze is on 24. April (release on 26.) and changing compiler versions that late in the cycle is potentially dangerous, I guess there is only a slim chance of success... On the pro-side is that having a beta compiler in the LTS release is undesirable, but even then I need to find an Ubuntu developer who does have time to do the sync and get the feature-freeze-exception. LDC FTBFSing on armel in Debian (and not entering testing due to that at time) is also an issue :-/


Ouch :-( Well, if you are happy to look into it, that would be great -- no pressure, though. :-)

Freeze exception for LDC was approved last-minute, which means the final release will be in Xenial :-)

BTW, the package description for ldc, in both Debian and Ubuntu, is insanely out of date: it reads,

   LDC already compiles a lot of D code, but should still be
   considered beta quality. Take a look at the tickets to get
   a better impression on what still needs to be implemented.

... which AFAICT is unchanged from something like 5+ years ago, when the ldc packaged in Debian/Ubuntu was a D1-only compiler still in heavy development.

Yeah, the description is really off-putting and should absolutely be changed... You can contect the Debian maintainer, Konstantinos Margaritis <mar...@debian.org> about it. Alternatively, I can also report a bug against LDC (need to find time for that, maybe tomorrow).

Cheers,
