I'm an editor of the Dutch webprofessional newssite WebGoeroe.net. We at 
WG are pretty interested in the port of ASP.NET you're doing under the 
Mono flag. I wonder if any of you could answer some questions we still 
have, which we could then compile into an article. I checked 
http://www.go-mono.com/asp-net.html but couldn't find any particular 
person to contact, so I though I'd just ask it here.

The questions are:
1. What made you decide to port ASP.NET?
2. What's the current status of the project?
3. We know there's a simple webserver being written to test the aspx 
pages, are there any plans making an Apache module in order to integrate 
XSP into this webserver, if so will this be done by integrating the Mono 
runtime or like Java servlet containers like Resin and Tomcat work, as a 
seperate server to which certain requests are redirected?
4. Currently Mono only allows you to code in C#, will there eventually 
be a possebility to use VB as a Mono language (because a considerable 
amount of ASP are used to using VBscript)?

Thanks in advance,
