You have an easy way to produce package, my MonoOSC :-), who is a
client to the opensuse OBS :

Also, i have started to write an universal installer, based on the
fact to extract RPM file of an .Net/Mono software packaged in a RPM at
OBS or locally.
The idea is to use OBS as a web media of RPM and so have a RPM manager
like Linux who will run under all platform (Mac, windows and
Linux(Linux can already use standard RPM manager)), to finally
uncompress file at the right place.

The idea for User/developer/maintainer is to have to manage an
standalone project and use the same interface for distribution of a
software production.

Small Eric Quotations of the days:
If one day one reproaches you that your work is not a work of
professional, say you that:
Amateurs built the arch of Noah, and professionals the Titanic.

Few people are done for independence, it is the privilege of the powerful ones.

No key was wounded during the drafting of this message.
