I am planning on asking to become TU for the dlang packages in
community. I've been building and working with the current packages
and making my own packages to make sure I know what I'm getting in to.
LDC and GDC are matched with the system versions of llvm and gcc. If I
can get TU approval I will put time in to these packages and hopefully
make some Arch tools that use dlang to try and promote it more.
To learn makepkg and nampac etc I built this [0], it is a set of
PKGBUILD files that are loosely based on the way I use multiple
official dmd compilers on my dev box. Some of my customers use older
version of Vibe that do not build on current dmd. I actually normally
use /usr/local/ and not /usr/lib for my dmd installation. It also has
a little utility for switching between compilers versions, similar to
