[Mono-list] Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server database support inMono ADO.NET
Wed, 16 Oct 2002 10:49:21 -0400
Can these students contribute their work to Mono under a X11/MIT license? I
would be more than happy to use a port of jTDS to C# in Mono
System.Data.SqlClient instead of FreeTDS.

I have two students planning to port jTDS to C#.
Why don't you take that approach instead?
I talked with Rodrigo about this yesterday.
