[Mono-devel-list] ByteFX development

If you have a look at the www.ByteFX.com and go to the data provider tab,
you'll see there that Reggie is now part of MySQL and the ByteFX code is
what he is developing for them.

I don't see any reason why, given the work he's doing, you wouldn't want to
stick with his code, since I understand he is making sure that it's mono

Reggie has always been responsive to any issues that have arisen, and I
would hope that he is just as responsive these days, even though he's
probably got some other stuff to work on as well.

We already ship ByteFX.Data as part of Mono, the Mono.Data.MySql assembly
has been depreciated in favor of that.

You could jump start the effort, and we will be glad to help you a little
bit, while we grow a community ;-)
