Many of the ports from the BSD# CVS repo were merged into the regular
FreeBSD ports tree over the weekend with a few stragling ports this

I started BSD# because a) I wanted to learn a language (all I know is
Bourne script and I really need to learn something more) and b) because
the latest available version in the ports tree when I started was out of
date.  The BSD# repo is now basically a place for testing port changes
before I send-pr them.  If your interested in the development of Mono
and want to hack it for FreeBSD to make it better then use the BSD#
tree, if you just want to try it out then you can use the regular
FreeBSD ports tree.

I'm not the regular FreeBSD port maintainer for Mono.  He's been
unavailable to maintain it so I just stepped in.  As you cans see above
I'm very in experienced and I'm just learning everything as I go.
Jeremy Messenger <mezz@FreeBSD.org> has been helping me a lot with Mono
but more help is always appreciated.  Thanks.
