Agreed :)

Some short term goals:

1) look at making a package of mono, monodevelop, and dependencies for
rpm, deb, and tar-ball for Linux
2) explore what has been used before
3) there are many optional packages that could be constructed:

- 32/64 bit
- targeting sdk 2 or sdk 4 (perhaps just target one for now)
- binary-only, with-source

4) setup a github repository and start collecting things
5) setup some documentation/lists on the web

That would be a good start. Even if we just have a place where people
can go to see what they need to build it themselves, that will be a
step forward. Then we can build the packages, have a place to download
them, and then get them into the distros themselves.
