[Mono-devel-list] Contribution to MSBuild

I was working on such a project (not in Mono) a while back, but the MSBuild's 
API was mostly undocumented. So I did not get very far beyond stubbing 
everything out and writing some broilerplate code (e.g. properties that would 
just return values from private fields).

A few of the API components for authoring new Tasks were documented in some 
articles, but many of API components were only listed with no description of 
what they actually do.

Is the Microsoft.Build.* namespace documented yet?
