I've been using the .NET framework for quite some time - I made a XKMS web
service (both client and server) two years ago (using the .NET beta 2).
There are still a few bugs in version 1.0 but I'm unsure about 1.1 (from
mono's unit tests I know that some were fixed) as I just installed 1.1 on my
new computer.

NP but vacations isn't my only distraction from mono - it may take me more
than 1 day to answers email when working ;-).

Post them to the list - I'll catch them there. This way other peoples can
review them (patches or suggestions) and (maybe) commit them if I'm too

That's the reason Miguel is investigating the license issues with Ximian
I hope we'll have a GO soon to commit into CVS. It would be a shame to fall
behind the new web services standards right now (when we just got both
client and server web services running on mono).
