Nice to see someone apply since the last fail.

Do you use Arch as your main computer OS? On servers ? On testing vm ?

What's about you? Where are you from? What's your name?
Do you ride horses?

I quickly looked your packages in AUR and they seems good. If I may
formulate small advices:
- Your quoting of $srcdir and $pkgdir is missing. Those variables can
have space ;
- No need to "cd $srcdir" at the beginning of package() ;
- It's bertter to use  install instead of mkdir and cp ;
- Try to avoid versionned dependencies (like 'dmd>=2.063' ).

Cheers, and good luck.
