The better question to ask is what would you like to do?

There are lots of things you can do:

  - Work on the class libraries.  See:


    The classes listed are the classes that need work, are incomplete,
    etc.  Find a namespace that interests you and start implementing.
    Much of this can be done on Windows and Linux.

  - Documentation.  Lots is needed.  It's in the monodoc CVS module.
    See also:


    However, you might want to wait on this until the documentation
    editor is complete.

    There is also the documentation mailing list:


  - HOWTOs.  These are in the monkeytalk CVS module, and can be seen at:


  - Test Cases:  Either implement more, or fix the bugs that they are
    finding.  NUnit is used for most test cases, but some are using
    NUnit2, so I'm not sure what we should be using for new test cases.

    Test cases should run under Windows, primarily so that we can make
    sure that the test cases work properly (and occasionally find bugs
    in .NET), but they are also run under Linux.

    However, I've heard that there are lots of mono bugs found by the
    current test cases, and these should be fixed.

  - Bug Fixes: See http://bugzilla.ximian.com, and look at the bugs for:
      Mono/Class Libraries

You should also take a look at the contributing page:
