Sadly I am not really sure what that comment was suggesting. Given
there was a claim of 3x speed up there must have been code. If that
code could be put forward then experiments could be run. Possibly
something for GSoC in that alone.

Right now it is remarkably similar to the 2015 page!  The 
Google folks seem rather busy, so maybe no one would notice, 
but if anyone has ideas for new projects that would be 
fantastic.


Also, if anyone feels an existing project needs to be 
withdrawn, please let me know.

Cool, I did not know there're plans for std.i18n.

By the way, I'm not student anymore, so no GSOC for me.

Would you be interested in mentoring that?

Also, for anything Phobos related it would be good to have 
general consensus that the project would eventually make its 
way into std.experimental at least. The discussion you linked 
to proposed the idea, but there wasn't much follow on. Perhaps 
a proposal should be floated on the General thread.


I am still in D kindergarten and this is way out of my depth. 
Sorry for the noise.

No need to apologize.  Maybe if you can't do it, we can find 
someone who would .. but I always ask as a matter of principle :o)

Please withdraw Cmsed. I've since stopped working on it. In 
favor of writing a web application server. Which should solve 
most of the problems it had.


Will do!
