The point that I was trying to make is that the current site doesn't
clearly reflect the use of Mono/ASP.Net.  This creates the perception of
the site that I tried to describe in my first email.  When I have
directed others to the site, they responded with the same sentiment. 
That's the contention that I was talking about, and not that the Mono
tools/developers/etc are incapable.  This emphasizes the need for
(a,b,c), but wouldn't necessarily be required to change the tone of the
site a little to show more of it's roots.  
  Are you looking for members of the community to do (a,b,c) or are you
looking at resources within Novell?
