[Mono-list] Mono and Patents....

Could you point me to some more information on the upcoming patent 
review you mention? It may be that this will resolve my questions. In 
the meantime, I have no immediate compelling need to use Mono, although 
I do have the interest. While I may invest the time to learn about it, I 
will most likely not look to implement anything substantial until I can 
find a clear answer on this. In the meantime, if the Ximian lawyers have 
already answered it clearly, I think putting something a bit more solid 
in the FAQ might help. Pointing me to the FAQ only helps if it actually 
answers the question. In this case, it does not do so.
