Hi Preeti, Hi list,
The part you are mentioning (implement what the missing async pieces from
the ASP.NET stack) is fairly new: the need arouse just a week ago, after
the release of OSS code from MS. So it's no wonder we haven't got any
answer yet :)
I am interested in working on this bit too, and as it seems no one is doing
it right now, I am just going to start working on it.

My plan is to try to get something useful as soon as possible: I will try
and compile the MS ASP.NET pieces on top of Mono, and make a list of what
is missing and needs to be implemented, post it here and then.. see how it
can be done and which is the best way to approach the problem.

I plan to start briefly (in a week or two I will have some spare time); if
you decide to go with the proposal, later in the summer I will need some
help for sure ;) especially with good tests, test cases, profiling and
performance measurement.

Just a little warning: async programming greatly improved thanks to C# 5,
but it is not the easiest development task in the world, especially in
ASP.NET where both stability and performance are crucial! The project,
IMHO, requires a good understanding of asyncronous and concurrent
programming. If you have successfully used the TPL DataFlow or CCR in the
past, it should be OK.
