I am currently working on an ADO.Net Provider for MaxDB that is registered 
in the SourceForge.net (see http://sourceforge.net/projects/maxdbprovider). 
The binaries are compiled for Net-1.1, Net-2.0 and Mono-1.0. Since the 
ADO.NET 2.0 is still in the development phase I can not build version for 
Mono-2.0. Provider is written in C# and can be compiled as fully managed 
assembly or managed wrapper for MaxDB client library. The former is more 
stable and portable the latter has better performance.
I have the following question to the Mono developers:
1) When ADO.NET 2 implementation will be complete? Will it be included in 
the Mono 1.2?
2)  I ran unit tests in the Debian Linux/Mono 1.1.13 and SUSE 9/Mono 1.1.16 
and the fully managed version was working less or more stable. But the 
unsafe provider failed dramatically with SIGSEGV signal. I checked program 
compiled by Mono 1.1.13 under .Net Framework 1.1 and everything worked fine. 
Thus the Mono P/Invoke mechanism is under suspicion. Could somebody give me 
some hint how to resolve this issue?
3) Could somebody help me to run test cases on the Big Endian hardware?
