[Mono-winforms-list] Contributing to Winforms

Hey Rik,

The *Strip classes may not be the best place to start.  Although I've 
taken the last week off from them, they are under active development. 
In fact, I have the ToolStripDropDownButton mainly done, but it requires 
changes in other classes as well, such as ToolStripDropDownItem and 
ToolStripProfessionalRenderer.  I tried to commit just it and some 
related classes so it would be available, but the dependencies on other 
changes are too complicated for a quick commit.

I should be getting back to *Strip stuff late this week or early next 
week, and I'll make getting that change in a priority.

Please, please, please don't let me discourage you from contributing, we 
need all the help we can get.  :)  But everything in *Strip is pretty 
interconnected, so it may be best to check the status page: 
http://mono.ximian.com/class-status/mono-HEAD-vs-fx-2/index.html and see 
if anything else interests you.  (I also have most of the 
TableLayoutPanel stuff done, but anything else should be fair game.)
