cool .. would that be the libraries ?... (or the compiler/runtime ?).

Right now XML is a high priority work ... I think minddog (Adam Ballai)
would appreciate help in large quantities as well as Simon Guindon from
Jabber.net who is looking forward to being able to Jabber from dotgnu.
I think this is your niche if you like XML ...

Nope ... because the ECMA stuff is already documented and at

Not me :) ... I don't have any idea how ADO works or how ADO.Net is going
to be implemented. Which makes you a lot more important if you can manage
that part ... hehe ...

Placing the projects under a single umbrella is unacceptable to most
project leaders . For example phpgroupware is a member of DotGNU , but
is developing it's webservice platform quite independently of the
effort on Portable.net etc.. We will converge at a future date , this
seperation also ensures protection of the other projects from situations
like the latest Patent issue.

this is that list :-)

If you could help with writing stuff for this ... I manage the front page
news for the dotgnu website , entries to the website & FAQ will be
accepted via me . Let me repeat , coding is not the only contribution
you can make.
Tell the list about any problems while building/running/ or testing
any component of DotGNU. It's prolly the easiest way to get help on
