Debian/Etch ships Mono and no MonoDevelop, thats correct.
I am maintaing backports of Mono and MonoDevelop from Debian/Testing for

Mono 1.2.6 packages for Debian/Etch are available from:

Mono 1.2.6 and MonoDevelop 0.18 is available from:
(I didn't upload MonoDevelop yet to backports.org)

If you want always the latest Debian packages of Mono and MonoDevelop
you can use this APT source line:
deb http://debian.meebey.net/etch-backports /
this will give you Mono 1.2.6 + MonoDevelop 0.18 currently

Or if you want to stay with Mono from Debian/Etch, you can also
only install MonoDevelop 0.18 with this APT source lines:
deb http://debian.meebey.net/etch-backports/monodevelop /
deb http://debian.meebey.net/etch-backports/mono-addins /
deb http://debian.meebey.net/etch-backports/cli-common /
this will give you MonoDevelop 0.18 only currently

Just add those APT repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list and you
get the latest official packages (official as in, packages maintained by
the official debian maintainer).

If you use backports.org, make sure you read
