Hello Timotheus,

I had in mind this one: http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian/

I also try not to build myself something from code for production use as 
I have no guarantee of a stability nor I trust that I will be doing the 
build correctly. Instead I believe that there are package builders that 
are much better at his than me and they know what they are doing and 
what source to use.

Unfortunately Ubuntu does a pretty poor job in maintaining their own 
repository and as you can see 
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mod-mono/+bug/1308047) I sent 
them a bug report even before Ubuntu 14.4 was released in April and they 
still have not decided how important that bug is or when they will fix it.

On the other hand I like the packages naming they use as it is pretty 
consistent during the years, widely used in other distributions and 
broken down into many parts so you can install only what you really need 
from mono. But I will give that repository a try.

I hope that one day http://download.mono-project.com will include this 
too as I see now that xamarin.com moved from IIS to Apache (Ubuntu) + 
Mono :).

- Vladimir
