Significant Forum Discussions

Wiki article: Starting as a Contributor had Andrei explaining how to set up D on a fresh box. Discussion let to a better wiki page that will hopefully help more people get started.

D fund asked about how people can donate to D. Andrei said he is still working on the D foundation he talked about at DConf and still expects it to be ready some time next year, hopefully early in the year. In the mean time, Bountysource was discussed, as well as paypal donations to individuals.

D for Game Development raged on into a second week, talking about using stable C libraries from D, pros and cons of GC in games, and laments about how much work there is still to do on toolchain issues.
