[DotGNU]Some thoughts about DotGNU

Hi folks,

I did some brainstorming about DotGNU, this brought up some

* What libs do we use for the following:
        - 2D animation
        - 3D animation
        - speech transmission
        - music transmission
        - other sound transmission

* CSant needs more documentation if we plan on using it instead of make.

* Should we develop something like a C# flex/bison system?

* What's the status of the Jabber classes in pnetlib?

* How far are we in the process of making perl/python/ruby

* Can we issue a statement of intention to support perl/python/ruby (to
attract some new developers already)?

* What's the status on the execution enviroments?

* What's the status on authentication?

* Some time ago there was a little discussion about a webservice
directory: something like the Free Software Directory with webservices
and a rating system that tells how much we approve of these webservices
(or a white list and a black list). What's the status here?

* I've been doing some thinking about how to improve our marketshare. MS
uses Rotor to target the universities at the moment, I believe we should
do the same. We have some great programs that are stable, innovative and
a lot cheaper than what the propietary software firms have to offer. If
we can put together books with explanations and exercises around these
programs we could turn some of the universities into our direction.
There would be some other advantages too, just consider a philosophy
chapter in every book :-). 
I don't think writing these books is too hard to do, the needed
expertise is already in the project, we just need to put what we already
know on paper so that new generations can profit from that. We also have
the right technologies to get a good interaction with the universities
(Forum is simply designed for this :-) so that the feedback can help
improve our software.
I know this idea is something new and strange, but if we can offer some
education today, we will be a lot stronger tomorrow.
