I see there is a dub section in [2]. Maybe another issue that has been brought up repeatedly fits in that category, namely extending code.dlang.org in various ways?


Indeed enhancing user experience of code.dlang.org such as showing github stars and e.g. downloads per month would be way more important then build tool itself.


I recommend to add a "donate for button", and to evaluate and visualize how many people are donating, for a certain package. This might give strong evidence where to invest more time - man power. In the first step the D Foundation should get all money and should try to use it to support the most often selected packages, to avoid loosing focus.

Martin, I am replying to your post specifically, but this reply is targeted at the 'code.dlang.org' discussion in general.

Improvements to code.dlang.org are going to be borderline ineligible for a GSoC project. Any such project would have to be carefully crafted so that it is a development project and not a website maintenance/upgrading project. In any case this work can likely be made into something valid, but the project would need involve a cohesive development effort and not a series of minor improvements (even if they mostly involved coding).
