Hi all

In the meantime we are waiting for reviews of dsss at REVU :) i worked on 

I've created a special repo for it at and you can download it doing:

bzr branch lp:~d-language-packagers/dsss/libtango

you will find:
debian direcotry
libtango sources
create-tree.sh script

the create-tree.sh will build a source tree starting from libtango archive and 
the debian directory.

For now there are problems with the install-gdc.sh script.

cd lib && \
        ./install-gdc.sh --prefix 
mv: cannot move `/usr/bin/../lib/libgphobos.a' to 
`/usr/bin/../lib/libgphobos.a.phobos': Permission denied
mv: cannot move `/usr/bin/../include/d/4.1.3/object.d' to 
`/usr/bin/../include/d/4.1.3/object.d.phobos': Permission denied
mv: cannot stat `../lib64/libgphobos.a': No such file or directory
Copying files...
`libgphobos.a' -> `/usr/bin/../lib/libgphobos.a'
cp: cannot remove `/usr/bin/../lib/libgphobos.a': Permission denied
Failed to copy libraries
make: *** [install/libtango] Error 7
dpkg-buildpackage: failure: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit 
status 2
debuild: fatal error at line 1329:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -D -us -uc failed

even if it's invoked with prefix, build-gdc.sh still tries to access /usr/bin . 
On #d.tango they said  that it's a bug.

In the meantime i saw that lovesyao added the dmd project under our 
repository... good work guy! i hope to help you soon :)

Good night
Vincenzo Ampolo
