ncurses on C# on Hurd with Chinese support… why? Oh god, why? Why not simply use ncurses on C or C++ instead like it's meant to be? What do you think you'll gain by using C#? The time you need to invest to make this work you could actually do _useful_ work.

Hi Alan,

I mainly focus on hurd, and make it work there.

I have a plan to release one full function text base hurd with perfect Chinese support,
and now I try to make Chinese input method works first. 

Why I need dotgnu is that I hope I can support one workable ncurses with c# binding( under help of swig), that's may be interesting for some hack to do first program in Hurd:), but port mono was not easy.

dotgnu was not so well, but it's small and easy envolution.

I am very interesting to make dotgnu to be one debian native package, to make it easy for envolution.

Are you interesting in developing or other way to help?

Since learning more about dotGNU and it's current project status, I've
moved over to Mono. But recently I've read things in the news about
how Microsoft might buy them out... Seems like that could go either

So as far as helping out, I've mostly chosen to help out with testing
for Trisquel and some of the included packages. On the side I'm
running test environments with Hurd and Guix. (thanks again everyone
for the infos)  =)
