I tried to package .NET Core a while ago but didn't produce anything useful. Their GNU/Linux story was rapidly changing at the time.

.NET Core was a pain to package partly because it bootstraps from a binary version of .NET Core similar to Rust. Although it may be possible to bootstrap via Mono I didn't try it and it's definitely not an upstream supported route ;).

Personally I ended up with just sticking to Mono for my C# needs as I found .NET Core didn't integrate as nicely into the GNU/Linux ecosystem.

That being said it would certainly be nice to have packages for it in Guix.

Two questions here.

1) Has anybody already started taking to try and upgrade Mono to latest?
If not, I will give it a go.

2) Have we started any packaging on .NET Core, would like to know to
prevent redundancy in work.

AFAIK nobody worked in this area yet, so you’ll probably have the
privilege to be a pioneer! :-)

Mono was added by janneke (Cc’d), who might have something to add?
