Any news on this? The arch packages are listed as orphaned.

Same question, and adding that I volunteer to take over.

Are you involved in Arch?

The update is that Arch TUs are not likely to accept one of us that is not very involved in Arch. I've been watching the Arch mailing lists a bit and two users that tried to get involved were rejected and one user who is _very_ involved and has been for years got accepted.

I have tried to contact the last person that built the packages to see I could help with the dlang packages but have not received a reply yet.


Ouch - so how do we improve the status quo?
It's July, the packages are still listed as orphans [1], haven't received the 2.074.1 update and the Arch TUs are clearly not interested in maintaining it (its flagged as out-of-date since beginning of June). Moreover, with the recent move to -fPIC (which currently is in -fPIC), the packages would need a rebuilt with -fPIC (see [2]).
Anyone with an idea?
