[Mono-dev] MonoDoc Win32 - Upload Contributions

Can you at least add the data providers? I can contribute docs for these.  Remember, I am the maintainer of the database pages on the mono wiki.
  And if possible, I wonder if there is a way to take current documentation for Npgsql, ByteFX.Data/MySql.Data, and FirebirdSql.Data and somehow convert it to Monodoc's format.
  Not sure how to accomplish this.  I'm sure I would need permission from the authors of those docs to do it.
  Having them in monodoc will allow mono application programmers to _know_ that the library _exists_ and allows them to see what members are available instead of having to read the source or use monop.  So, please add these.
  Joshua probably would be the best to write monodoc docs about the SQL Lite provider since he's the current maintainer.
Oh, can we add docs for libraries that do not come with Mono?  Such as, MySql.Data from MySQL AB.    
  As for the ProviderFactory in Mono.Data, what is missing?
  In the future, it possibly could be deprecated if the majority of Mono users have moved to ADO.NET 2.0 which has built-in provider factory support.  However, I am still doing only ADO.NET 1.1.
  BTW, if Upload Contributions is fixed on Monodoc/win32, you will have more contributions from people.  See bug 77684.  Bug 77955 is duplicate of 77684.

I added Windows.Forms recently;
Mono.Http is really an internal class
Mono.Data is unfinished as far as I can tell.

For the other ones, I can add the stubs, am just afraid that we might
end up with a lot of stubs and no content, which is why I have not
stubbed them out.

I think you can email your ~/.config/monodoc/changeset.xml and I can
apply those changes manually to the repository.
