My packages are not split like the Xamarin packages or the Fedora
packages, where you have many packages resulting from the mono
The aim is that they should just work, and I don't want to invest
maintaining them to a high standard of cleanness.
Rather I have invested my time into Mono on Fedora packages, which
results in the achievement that Fedora 23 will be delivered with Mono4
onboard! :)

All the best,
