[Mono-osx] How to display class/method descriptions during code completion?

If I understand your question correctly you are asking about the API tooltips 
that appear when pressing Control-Shift-Space. In the .NET world on Windows (at 
least with Visual Studio) those API tooltips come from an XML file. That XML 
file has the same name as the assembly, but uses the extension .xml instead of 

Here's an example:

applejacks:/ slessard$ ls -las 

312 -rwxr-xr-x  1 root  admin  - 157184 Nov 22 09:19 

360 -rw-r--r--  1 root  admin  - 181415 Nov 22 09:19 

applejacks:/ slessard$

Subject: [Mono-osx] How to display class/method descriptions during code 

I have started editing the summary tag in the xml doc files for some of the 
classes I am reviewing, and I would like to check the results in MonoDevelop 
before I submit.  How are these edits made available to MonoDevelop?
