[Mono-list] Wanabees and mentors?

I've gotten positive responses from a few people about this. I am just
reading up on a few suggestions, and I will be in touch with people as I
make up a sort of roadmap.
It will take awhile, as I have just started a new contract and have to
prioritize, but hopefully I will have a rough outline pointing out "what you
need to know" ("you" meaning anyone who wants to work on or understand Mono
internals) in a few days. I am not a technical writer, so don't expect
anything fancy. ;)
I do have two questions for Miguel:
1 - what was the first thing you did when you started Mono? (ie. did you
read certain documention, try MS .NET Framework, etc...?)
2 - what were the first things you coded for Mono in general, and in
particular for the compiler?

Being myself part-Wannabe part-CrazyDog I may not qualify to be your mentor,
but as I am the one who is trying to make the Mono compiler at least
bilingual, if you wan't to dialogue with me, I'm all ears (let's say eyes).
