Hello Paul!

   Thanks for offering your help for the project!  Lets get you
started.  I suggest that you start by getting both the runtime and the
class libraries installed and compiled in your system as a first step.

   We have been assisting various contributors on channel #mono on
irc.gnome.org to get them started, if you need some help besides what is
available on the web site, just come hang out with us.

Excellent news!

> let me know what to do,

The most important pieces are to finish all of our class libraries.  In
various areas:

	* Code new classes.
	* Finish existing classes.
	* Bug fix existing classes.
	* Write regression tests for existing classes.
