I assume I should be filing Mono bugs in your Bugzilla, right?

Actually, I've already gotten a couple of great fixes from Atsushi Eno =
based on bugs I filed in Bugzilla that have helped me past problems.

I assume it would make sense to post issues with FAQs or other =
documentation bits there as well.

Does that make sense?

=A0 Where should bugs be filed?

That's the plan.  I will be posting bugs and/or patches as we proceed.

We also plan to do an article on the porting effort once we are done,
possibly for publication but certainly for our website.  We'll send a
copy to mono list when we are done.

Can you point us to the Mono Handbook and the FAQ errors so we can
correct them? =3D20

As things change quickly, we have not had a chance to update everything
that references this mistaken information.

Yup, that has been my request about the Monkeyguide on mono-docs-list a
few times.

Am tempted to remove the Monkeyguide from the Mono site until a serious
editorial pass has been done.

If you could start posting bug reports to this list, with concrete urls
that are wrong, that would be a fantastic step.
