We have a few rules regarding contributions to the Mono project, as follows:

1) If you have looked at Microsoft's implementation of .NET or their shared
source code, you will not be able to contribute to Mono. 

2) In general, be careful when you are implementing free software and you have
access to proprietary code. We need to make sure that we are not using someone
else's copyrighted code accidentally. 

3) Do not use the ildasm, reflector or other equivalent tools program to
disassemble proprietary code when you are planning to reimplement a class for
Mono. If you have done this, we will not be able to use your code. 

4) Please stick to published documentation for implementing any classes; when
in doubt, post to the mailing list and discuss the possible approaches with

As per these rules, we obviously cannot disassemble, look at, use, copy, etc,
any copyrighted code with any tools whatsoever.

Please don't paste copyrighted code or tell us how something should work based
upon you looking at disassembled copyrighted code. When filing a bug, please
create a small test case that can be used to test the behaviour, so we can run
it against Mono and .NET and verify that the API call has a matching behaviour
on both (and eventually add it to our unit tests, so we can check for
