Anything that makes it possible for Windows developers to build mono and
run its tests so we can contribute more would be good. We use VS2010
exclusively in our work with Mono - with Resharper it does everything we
need, so we've never bothered to upgrade. Having the community edition of
2013 would make it possible for us to contribute if the solution files and
build scripts are in place.
