There are currently some 34 full time developers at Novell working on
Mono related technologies: Mono (core, class libraries, compilers), Mono
for Visual Studio, MonoTouch, MonoDevelop and Moonlight.

WindowsBase, WCF and a handful of other pieces have moved to mcs.   

Olive now only contains WWF and WPF, and nobody at Novell is actively
working on either one of those.   If anyone feels like they really need
those, they could start with the code on SVN.
