I'm confirming my sponsorship of this dude. I'd like to hand over the D
toolchain to someone else who actually uses D but I think it should stay
within official Arch repos.
He has helped me with the official D packages in the past. Furthermore,
I think this person shows good technical competence in general and can
probably be trusted with a few unrelated packages as well. I don't
consider the low self-perceived level of packaging experience a problem
in this case.
