(MSYS2-mingw-w64, Cygwin, OpenSuse 13.2), each hosted on my computer,
for compatibility with the officially installed packages.
Two simple issues I'm pretty confident deserve advancement are:
1. Update libharu - its version is 2.2.1 from the Suse repository. This version
produces an error in the plplot test usage (cause unknown, but error
no longer there when I use libharu 2.3.0, as is, compiled out of the
2. bring in the D language compiler gdc in place of the "dmd" version. GDC
has been successfully incorporated into the Debian and Fedora packages.
When it grows up it should be a regular part of the GCC suite.
Regarding adding packages to Tumbleweed, the details you are looking
for are on the wiki
Regarding libharu - I'd reach out to the previous maintainer(s), their
email addresses are in the changelog -
Regarding gdc vs dmd, if either gdc or dmd were in the distribution,
then I would be encoraging you to start a thread on opensuse-factory@.
But as neither gdc nor dmd are actually in Tumbleweed or Factory, your
first stop would be the same as for libharu - I'd get in touch with
the current maintainer
) and then between the two of you, you should be able to figure out a
plan about getting dmd in the distribution properly, using the
documentation on the wiki as your guide
Good luck, and thank you! :)
