I launched the initiative for dmd.
Robin Kreis sent an E-mail to Walter, and forwarded his answer to me.
My policy would be to include this E-mail in /usr/share/license/dmd/,
like for Skype.
I don't know much about this whole D question, I use use apps written in D.
I would need another authorization to package libphotos and/or
libtango (then, including dmd to use the same E-mail for all

And it's x86-only, binary form (i.e. no x86_64).
gdc, GCC's port for D, is far from usable in its last stable version,
from what I've heard on #d.

I think it should be discussed here, as it's not available for x86_64,
only Archlinux and a few others can redistribute it, etc.
I personnaly would like to include it, as you can guess.

Thank you for your work,
