This broke one of my projects in a pretty severe way -- deep down in
low-level template mixin code that's very difficult to work around.  :-(

Looks like it was known it would break code? It broke code in Phobos at least. Pull Request: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/9769

D's internal infrastructure (druntime, phobos, tools, dub, ...) + the list of projects on BuildKite [0] are the "only" automated gatekeepers for breaking changes. Unless a project is added to this list, we can't guarantee that there won't be any breaking changes, as we have no practical way to ensure that. The fact that your library broke means that it is particularly interesting as apparently it is not covered by this extended test suite. If possible, it would be great if you can either: A) Reduce the part of your code that broke and add it to the dmd test suite. B) Publish the whole or part of your library on GitHub and open a pull request to update the BuildKite list [0]. It may sound strange, but this is the only way I can see D getting more stable over the years: the more D projects are available open-source and the more of them are added to [0], the less chance is that a breaking change will go undetected. P.S. Thanks for testing git HEAD ;) Cheers, Petar [0]: https://github.com/dlang/ci/blob/338a692013b9889ceaf2bbc726be94e259ff9708/buildkite.sh#L110

It's actually a standalone project.

 you can either:
 A) Reduce the part of your code that broke and add it to the dmd test
 suite.
The reduced code is already in the bug. Presumably that would be added to the test suite after the bug is fixed.
 B) Publish the whole or part of your library on GitHub and open a pull
 request to update the BuildKite list [0].
