+Product: Mono: Doctools
+Summary: Monodoc doesn't show declarative security attributes on the assembly, class and methods
+Description of Problem:
+Monodoc should extract the declarative security attributes on the assembly,
+class and methods and include them into the documentation.
+There isn't much security attributes right now in the Mono class libraries
+but this will change in the next year. People may also wonder (when CAS is
+turned ON) why some things are now throwing security exceptions - so
+Monodoc is better be "prepared" to answer.
+The good news is that the additional informations doesn't (really) need to
+be human-edited. Displaying the security attribute will give enought clues.
+* Right now there is no public API to get the informations. An internal API
+(using reflection on Mono's mscorlib) will soon be available for the
+* .NET 2.0 October Preview started reporting declarative security
+attributes as "pseudo" attributes in GetCustomAttributes. Eventually we'll
+do the same. This should provide the information for profile NET_2_0.
