Wonderful Miguel.

Just an small question: I saw in the documentation committed this kind of
element sprinkled all around:

      <attribution license="cc4" from="Microsoft" modified="false" />

That seems to indicate that it is licensed with an unmodified version
4 Creative Commons license, but it is not clear which of the
additional constraints like NonCommercial, ShareAlike, and more
importantly, NoDerivatives are attached as we are interested in
starting an effort to produce a translation to Brazilian Portuguese,
inside the MonoBrasil community, and we are not sure if we can legally
do it.

I could not find any post by MS stating the licensing choice.

If the license allows the translation effort, I think you may prefer
for it to be built standalone, on a separate repo, mirroring the
mono/mcs/class tree, empty but for the documentation nodes, to make it
buildable into some addin fashion to MonoDevelop/XS, and to allow MS
to repackage it for use in VS.

Hopefully great times ahead...
