We are ok with this slight confusion for the next couple of months, since
it is temporary.

This is a call to the mono developers / Xamarin to change this and to
>>> provide us packagers with the information we need to package mono and the
>>> related packages for our distribution.

We do make mistakes every once in a while, this seems an area where we keep
dropping the ball.
