[Mono-list] Mono Download Page Changes
Thu, 01 Apr 2004 15:25:45 -0500
Oh, keep in mind as well that these projects being proposed all use
mono-cvs for revision control, bugzilla.ximian.com for bug tracking, and
lists.ximian.com for mailing lists, and go-mono.com/archive/ for
distribution. So the distinction between 'Works with mono' and 'Mono
Extras' is still there outside of a web page.
