Yes, you did not read my email on the other thread.

I have not seen you discuss any pull requests on the mailing list.  Did I
miss something?

Mono and Xamarin are two separate entities.   If you want to discuss Mono,
we can discuss Mono.   If you want to discuss Xamarin, we can discuss
Xamarin, but those two have two different profiles.

For example, you seem to be interested in ASP.NET, and while Mono supports
this Xamarin does not, and will not support anything related to ASP.NET.
Xamarin is in a separate space.

Surely you are aware that the community in general is feeling discouraged

And I have offered a solution.   I await for your pull requests with a CC
to the mailing list to discuss your particular changes.

Now, if this is unsuitable for you, the good news is that Mono is open
source, so you can apply all the patches that you feel like you need on
your private copy.   I will continue to have a high bar for the
contributions we take.
