[Mono-list] Adding missing Attributes to System.Web

Extra credit goes to the person that can work out how to derive the
parameters of an attribution via reflection (I don't think it can be
done). In my book, this is a gap in the reflecction API.

If you can, let me know how, and I'll add it to corcompare.

Gonzalo reminded me to say this bit.

As to which Attribute is missing, this is already known. You can find
out what classes need which method from this page:


What attribute.cs does is let you put in filters for each Attribute type
and find out what the value the Attribute store.

So, go to the CorCompare page listed above, find a class, find out what
Attributes are needed and add them to the list of 'filters' in the
ToString () method.
