Benefit to Fedora
Fedora will take some benefit to increase its community of developers with the inclusion of this feature. And an easy way for people who want to try this language. Fedora could to become a good choice for everyone who use D or want learn D programming. In more with this feature they are several tool for making games or 3D application.

- Ensure that unnitest works
- Collect feedback from volunteers regarding their experience with D programming
None necessary. We should fix existing packages in order to help the Community. We should also monitor upstream development process for potentially discovered issues and pro-actively apply patches.
The D programming language will be available in Fedora 18. D is a modern language with high performance near C/C++ with an easy syntax. C/C++ and Java developers can easily migrate to D.
