I hope to add some value here too. :)

I meant it!

OK, I'm anoncvs'ing the source as we speak. My Savannah handle is rcalco, I
work on the Ruby FreeRIDE project there.

I'll worry about starting something new once I attain developer-dom.

%% DotGNU Portable.Net is similar to the Mono project . So visit

%% We share a certain amount of code ... Portable.Net's I18n code has been
%% relicensed to Mono on request . It is not a typical fork and is kept in
%% sync IIRC (which is easy since those 50k lines are mostly autogenerated).
%% And our runtime uses a header file from Mono JIT which
%% simplifies x86 code
%% generation.

Thanks for the info!
