do not hesitate to contact me if you like, but the idea seems rather
vague to me. Mono development is currently lead by Xamarin which is also
open to accept ideas and patches from community. How this really works,
you can observe at github: https://github.com/mono/mono.git The amount
of community driven patches probably increased with git and github as it
simplifies submitting and merging patches.
On the Microsoft side, the actions that helped Mono development were
open sourcing some parts of .NET (for example DLR, lately Entity
Framework) using useful licence (Apache 2.0, for that matter). One could
probably create wishlist containing another parts. For example Nuget,
which theoretically admits Mono existence, but support is severely
limited (for example try to create package).
But the most important question here is: what is the role of the
