I wish I heard the above statement two months ago ;)
It's not so much that it isn't ready, it more of the goose chase I felt
I was on. I kept finding little scraps of information about compiling
Mono/PPC. A lot of 'Try XXX, it worked for me'.
If someone or some documentation simply stated that Mono/PPC wasn't
ready for developers to compile, i would have switched modes from
trying to use it to trying to help fix it.
As it stands, i just got frustrated thinking i wasn't doing something
correctly. The lack of response from the lists seemed to confirm my
feelings, because i assumed I was asking bad questions that had already
been answered somewhere else.
I just got burnt out I guess.
I will keep following the development, and I hope to contribute some
day. One question I do have for everyone is who owns the Mono/PPC
port? Is there someone steering it that I should be contacting
directly, or is it more of a free for all?
