+Bug#: 79987
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: 1.2
+OS: GNU/Linux [Other]
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: misc
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs at ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: CLS compliance enforcement too picky
+Description of Problem:
+The way Mono runtime manages CLSCompliantAttribute makes it impossible to
+use mixed compliant-noncompliant assemblies.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Invoke "gmcs cls.cs", file content follows:
+using System;
+[assembly: CLSCompliant(false)]
+public class Foo {
+Actual Results:
+cls.cs(4,14): error CS3014: `Foo' cannot be marked as CLS-compliant because
+the assembly is not marked as CLS-compliant
+Expected Results:
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+The only known workaround is to disable CLS checks altogether (/clscheck-).
+csc compiles the same file successfully.
