> "Porting Mono to `asm.js`", presented for GSoC, caught my attention
> recently. I spent some time researching this and I'd like some
> clarification from the community:
> Since Mono-LLVM support does exist[mono-llvm]
> <http://www.mono-project.com/docs/advanced/mono-llvm/>, why would the
> need arise for a port? I understand that there are limitations
> [mono-llvm#limitations]
> <http://www.mono-project.com/docs/advanced/mono-llvm/#limitations> in the
> above approach as LLVM doesn't fully support all the needs of Mono; but
> since there is no specifications given which would require one to avoid the
> above approach (mono-llvm-->llvm-->emscripten-->asm.js), I'm a bit confused.
> On a different note, could you explain to me whether I should use the
> forums instead of the mailing-lists (which I prefer) for communication
> regarding GSoC and the `asm.js` port.
