Hi guys

Not being able to work with sources (debug)  as greatest rejection point 
for users around me and those are ergular .net - c# developers used to 
work with .net and Visual Studio.

Though just testing and proper bug reporting is great help for Xamarin 
team. You'll have to understand that increasing number of community pull 
requests will have impact on Xamarin team - testing and approval.

So we can not expect miracles to happen in next few months and we have 
to understand that

  * there is not enough manpower / resources in Xamarin alone
  * documentation is outdated and missing
  * volume is increasing and small team like Xamarin + community
    almost every aspect
      o communication - see forums and mailing lists
      o number of users
      o platforms
  * Xamarin focus currently
    (and we must understand why is this so and accept this as the fact)
      o mobile platforms
      o Xamarin Studio

So let's organize.

 1. for starter maybe changing the subject. line so we could track this
 2. define/decide where we could put notes (latest findings, ideas,
    today google docs or github it is up to us - just do not get dragged
    in into endless discussions

There is so much to say/do, but have to go.
