Long story short, it si clearly a waste of time. Qualifying the process would be an understatement.

Some specifically DIP27 has been written in Feb 2913, following various discussion at that time. I pushed it at the time. I moved it to the new git DIP repository. Got mostly irrelevant feedback (Hi Martin) and more generaly the loop time is measured in month.

I'm doing this on my free time. I have other things to do.

The DIP process is beyond broken. It essentially goes as :
- If you are Andrei or Walter, then your DIP is just a formality. No matter how bad it is, it is in (Hi DIP25, inout turned out so great for type qualifier we clearly need that for lifetime). - If anybody else does it, you have no idea what you are getting into. You'll be still there in 5 years with no end in sight.

I've been a sucker for long enough. I'm not playing anymore and I'd suggest to anyone playing to stop. I've probably be playing longer than pretty much anyone here. Trust the bitter old man, he knows.

It's not just DIPs, that pretty much fits my experience with dmd/phobos PRs, too. The only feedback is trivial nitpicking, and then you spend a year or so babysitting an endless stream of rebases just for it to keep getting ignored.
