This is an unsorted list of tasks, which improve the documentation. The original thread on the forum can be found here.

The List

Id Description Info / Guides / People working on
1 promote directly on D's webpage
2 promote authors to copy/write/(at least link) articles/tutorials/cookbooks on the wiki (there are many, but also many are scattered threw out the web)
3 decrease score of packages, which don't build on
4 Language and library reference have enough examples (at least the parts I use). Examples are simple and clear. However to a newcomer needs also more complex examples, like tutorials or cookbooks. Idea: one link, on the specific reference to a section with related articles/tutorials/cookbooks.
5 opinionated suggestions in getting started (a newcomer is overwhelmed by the possibilities of compilers,editors/ides. Suggestions: dmd, vscodium with code-d)
6 pack this task list somewhere on the wiki done
7 Encourage newcomers to edit the wiki. This is a simple task, often dull to do for experienced community members, but great for newcomers, because they are included AND they explore the wiki ant the community on themselves.
8 Finish the book
