How is Ubuntu supporting Mono 2.10.5, which is listed as > "Debian 2.10.5-1"? What is the relationship? Ubuntu's Mono packages are more or less Debian's, give or take the occasional ARM patch. "mono -v" mentions Debian on Ubuntu because I didn't patch it not to - it's basically the same package as is currently in Debian Experimental. > 3) Are there changes to Mono, or other information, that other > distro-builders would benefit from?

We're fairly communicative with upstream (read: chat on #mono on GIMPnet), but it's rare that other distro packagers show up. I also know the Gentoo Mono packager via Twitter. There's a mothballed mono-packagers@ximian mailing list, but it sorta died a long time ago. > 4) FYI, I'm working on dlr-languages and hope to have my current, > rough draft up on a repository this week. Neato, we were worried we'd have to drop it entirely. From a quick look, it seemed happy enough to build and run - the challenge was making a legally redistributable source tarball from the complete mess that is upstream's source repository.
