[Mono-list] Flash Remoting on Mono

Flash Remoting and FlashORB are remoting solutions for Flash Player.
It works similar to SOAP, but the protocol is binary and significantly
leaner than SOAP. Flash Remoting is a Macromedia implementation,
FlashORB is a third party one. There are open source implementations
for php, perl, and python, but not for .NET (although I stumbled on
this: http://starwolf.ch -- but it doesn't appear to be open source).


I would be interested in working with someone to port AMFPHP
[http://amfphp.org] to .NET in C#. This is the open source php
implementation of Flash Remoting. I've looked through the code, and
it's not incredibly large or complex. I've never contributed to an
open source project before, much less started one, but I am willing to
take initiative and get my feet wet with something relatively simple
like this.

If anyone is interested, please let me know.
