I believe there is a number of mono developers interested in the enterprise
features of .NET.

>From what I know, Joshua Prismon, Lluis Sanchez and others are working on
this, but first the central pieces of what could be a mono enterprise
application server need to be there... things like .NET remoting comes to
mind, which is something been very actively been developed.

Maybe all this people should get toghether somehow to coordinate this effort
more effectively, and also probably make their objectives a bit more visible
to other possible contributors.
