[Mono-dev] Interest in GSoC .NET and Mono integration

Hi Nishant,

Our current implementation of System.IO.FileStream lives at https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/corlib/System.IO/FileStream.cs. It has strong dependencies on System.IO.MonoIO which lives at https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/corlib/System.IO/MonoIO.cs and which depends on the runtime for the different icalls implemented in https://github.com/mono/mono/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=filename%3Aw32file&type=Code<https://github.com/mono/mono/search?utf8=✓&q=filename:w32file&type=Code>.

Out current implementation of System.Diagnostics.Process lives at https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System/System.Diagnostics/Process.cs. The runtime implements the different icalls in https://github.com/mono/mono/search?p=1&q=filename%3Aw32process&type=Code&utf8=%E2%9C%93<https://github.com/mono/mono/search?p=1&q=filename:w32process&type=Code&utf8=✓>.

The end goal is to get rid of most of our mono-specific code both in managed and in the runtime (System.IO.MonoIO, the w32process and the w32file files), but we would first need to add support to CoreFX for the different platforms that we support that they don't (Android, iOS, Haiku, etc.)

I would be the one to look over these 2 projects, so if you have any question, I would be very happy to answer them.

Thank you,

Any guidance here would be appreciated!

I am a grad student in India and I came across this board from the GSoC idea page for Mono. I would love to help in the Microsoft .NET and Mono integration initiative, as I have plenty of experience in C# and .NET Framework/.NET Core along with other tools like NuGet. Please let me know of a good way to get started!

I was hoping to get in touch with Ludovic Henry and talk to him about a plan of action. The projects that catch my eye include:

1) Import System.IO.FileStream from CoreFx
2) Import Process from CoreFx

I have a few boiling questions that i would love if someone could help answer for me so I can start working on writing the proposal.

It would also be great, if to get familiar in this area, someone could point me to a few bugs which I can fix before GSoC to get my hands dirty.
