With the usual response here: "Why do you not fix it yourself or pay for it". Maybe because most people who come want to use the tools and be productive and not spend their time fixing up those tools.
I've never seen anyone write that. Most likely you saw someone post something that looks similar, but has a dramatically different meaning. The usual response is "If you want something done, you're going to have to do it yourself or pay someone to do it for you, or else it won't get done."
Its a mentality issue that some do not get here. In order to grow you need consumers for your product. If you force or whine to them to fix the issues, they leave. When they leave you lose potential growth. That loss in growth means losing potential members that can fix and want to fix the issues.
And this clarifies the source of your confusion. The D programming language is an open source project, not a for-profit company. D is not the language you're looking for.
