   I'm planning on writing up a dump of OSX related summit notes to  
this list in the next day or two, but I'll answer our current thoughts  
on this one now as its sure to come up repeatedly.

The current plan is to split up our future packaging a bit.  For the  
next release we will ship 3 packages.

1 Mono package
1 Gtk+ package
1 MonoDevelop package

This will mean little to nothing for consumers; as we will ship all  
three of these in a .mpkg in our .dmg.  However it will give us the  
ability to upgrade each of these components independently as needed in  
"extra" packages.

That being said, we probably will not ship Gtk+ with 1.2.6, but in the  
following weeks.  In other words we're hopefully a matter of weeks  
away, not months.
