No. The dmd tool remains but has been revamped significantly. the gdc
and ldc tools are additions. Currently they are close to copies of each
other. More refactoring is needed to pull out common material.

I believe not. SCons stays very much as is. It might be good though to
investigate integrating the D linking activity more with the C/C
++/Fortran bits.

Indeed. I will remove the issue tracker from that fork and forward
people to Tigris.

With a few more days of one or two people trying it and not finding
gross errors, yes I think I will submit a pull request so that we get
the changes in sooner rather than later.

There will though always be this fork in one guise or another as long as
D tooling is evolving.

I wonder though if deleting a fork repository after a successful pull
request merge and recloning for the next item if work is a good
