[Mono-devel-list] Mono Windows installer / GAC

Hi Gonzalo,

I wonder if it wouldn't be better to have a separate root directory for
storing the gac on Windows (guess we should also do this for unix, no) ?

Currently, every Mono (beta, I know) release has a separate gac directory.
What will happen once there are several mono releases (well, there are
already several beta releases) ?  Should a third party component be
installed in each individual GAC to be accessible to all Mono releases ?

Wouldn't it be better to come to a separate Mono GAC directory (eg.
<WINDIR>\Mono\gac) that is shared between all Mono releases (like MS does) ?
