[Mono-list] Be carefull. MS put an adendum to the SDK EULA

Thanks for the warning, but I don't think it was ever envisaged that Mono would be redistributing MS product at any point.
I don't think the border is fuzzy at all... the end "product" Mono should not include any MS product.

An Addendum to the EULA
expressly forbids running the .NET redistributables in non-Windows
platforms, so that even if our runtime now allows it we MUST NOT copy class
library DLLs or csc, and even sample code, to Linux.
In truth they forbid to redistribute those to run on non-windows platforms,
but I think the border is fuzzy enough to warrant some trouble.
So I advise every mono contributor that any work with those MS resources
have to occur on a Windows Box or VM.
DONīT COPY THINGS AROUND!
