Hi everyone,

The D packages for ArchLinux has been orphaned since Dicebot stepped down as the maintainer and no one else stepped up. So I decided to step up and apply to become a Trusted User, and I got accepted yesterday[1]. So from now on I will be the one who maintains all the D packages (in the [community] repo), and it will be my job to fix them if they break.

If you haven't heard of me before (which is probable because I mostly lurk), my name is Dan, I'm 21 years old and I'm the developer of PowerNex[2], a D kernel/OS, and I livestream coding at Twitch[3].

Currently only dmd, dtools, ldc and lib{,l}phobos are in the [community] repo. I would like to move over dub, dcd, dscanner and dfmt (some of these were dropped from [community] due to being orphaned). You guys can help by voting on AUR packages that you want to be moved to [community].

Feel free to ping me on anything that is related to packaging or the ArchLinux packages.
I hope I can maintain ArchLinux as a great environment to use D.
