Thank you!

I've contacted with Mihail however he said that the support is failing
due to some conflict with the DWARF4. (The 3 D-specific DWARF
extensions are overlapping with some DWARF4 extensions
As this should be resolved within the compiler development community,
I would like to get comfortable to contribute to GDB the necessary D
specific interface. I read the development resources however I still
feel kinda lost in the GDB dev environment, I would appreciate if
someone could help me out with some specific blog entries or similar,
so I could catch up faster. (For first I would like to learn how to
add reasonable test suites for testing the D interface.)
