[Gtk-sharp-list] Gtk# 2.12 for Windows

I have tried to build the Gtk# SVN version for Windows and finally got 
it working :-) . As I want to share my build with all the others but 
have no idea how to create an installer for Windows(and BTW, one already 
exists for Gtk# 2.10) I thought it would be best if I joined forces with 
someone who already has experience in creating Gtk# installers; any help 
is appreciated! Just send an email to the list or directly to me.

Getting Gtk# to work took me about 7 full-time days mainly because of 
the broken gapi-cdecl-insert script(see 
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=417615) and the deprecated 
documentation here: 
http://www.mono-project.com/Compiling_Mono#Building_GTK.23. It points to 
old Gtk versions, is much more complicated than the solution I found, 
does not mention that you have to install some Mono assemblies into the 
MS GAC(Mono.Cairo, etc.) and also does not explain building Gtk# for 
Mono(it only says how to build it for the MS GAC and the Mono build is a 
little more complicated).
Mike, if I sent you an updated version of the Doku, could you upload it 
to the Mono Wiki?

Again, I would be great if someone could help me with the installer so 
that we soon have a 2.12 version of Gtk# for Windows :-)
