And this clarifies the source of your confusion. The D

There are 3 years since C# is also open source project. Last
week 72 pull requests form 24 contributors were merged on
~master. And this is only for Roslyn (the C# compiler).
The difference (at least for me) is that contributing to C# is
a no-brainer. Contributing to D needs an advanced degree in
computer science. Using the information on the D wiki didn't
helped me until now to successfully compile and test a fresh
copy of dmd or phobos.
Hey.. I feel your pain.. I like things to be easy too ;-)
but I think comparing things in the C# world, to things in the D
world, does not make a lot of sense, really.
It's like comparing my local corner shop to some worldwide
What's the point in going into the local corner shop and
complaing that they don't stock this or that, but the supermarket
down the road does. Or complaining that they charge $4 for a loaf
of bread, when down the road at the supermarket it only costs
You have to compare apples with apples, not apples with shiny red
toffee apples ;-)
