Well, I'm a community member, and that's what I plan to do, but it's
going to be a beta source release (see my previous mail on that
I happen to have upload rights to
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gtk-sharp, so it's going to be
hosted at the right place.

I'm sure looking forward to anyone's help.

Xamarin is a company that was created to provide tools to develop iOS
and Android apps, so they need to care about their customers.
But that doesn't mean what they do doesn't benefit all Mono and GTK#
users. For example, a bugfix was recently merged into GTK#,
contributed by Michael Hutchinson, a Xamarin employee:
It fixes a long-standing bug in GTK#, and I think he worked on it as
part of his job on MonoDevelop.

As a Banshee maintainer, I can tell you that it was one of the
reasons, but it was not the only reason, by far.
