I'm going through bugzilla in increasing ID order looking for tasks to
bootcamp, and am finding a bunch of old bugs that haven't been looked at
in a long time.
It would be really great to get rid of some of these old issues and
generally put some order in our bugzilla. If some are just enhancements
that given the current direction of D will never happen (as is the case
with the proposed syntax "static else if" as an alternative/replacement
for "else static if") please let me know and I'll look into closing them.
We've been liberal about putting things in bugzilla. Well, at some time
we also need to look at them - it's not a write-only database like in
that joke :o).
For example, https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1448 should be
addressable. Either we should provide a translation function for
outputting things and recommend it, or document that codepages that D
runs on Windows etc - there's got to be a solution. It's not an
NP-complete problem. Can somebody fluent in Windows codepages take a look?
