No, that has not been the contention issue.

The issue has been that we need:

	a. A new design that can serve the different needs that we have,
	   starting with defining the audience, the layout and its goals.

	b. Design graphically a site that would include support for those
	   audiences defined above, roughly: Installing Mono, Using Mono,
	   Developing with Mono and The Development of Mono.

	c. Someone to oversee the integration of the few pieces of dynamic
	   content that we have.

In fact, today the Mono web site *uses* ASP.NET, just not on the front

So you are wrong in that there is any issue using ASP.NET, we just have
not had anyone who can do (a), (b) and (c) other than what I have done.
