[Mono-list] meaning of "protected internal"?

I checked with the Csharp language reference, and at least one version
of it says this:

"protected internal members are accessable only from derived classes
in the same assembly"

This means that it is "protected && internal". Do you have a reference
which says that it is "protected || internal"?

BTW, I think Mono treats it as "accessable from derived classes or
from within the assembly", which according to the above is
incorrect. Perhaps a more recent version of the language spec
contradicts this?
