[Mono-winforms-list] bug counts

Ah, but the real question is when we shall see a proper Mac OS X  
installer for MonoDevelop, even in its current state. I have looked  
at some of the material, but the list of dependencies is incredibly  
complex and ever-changing, and I am not even certain if all of the  
information is even up to date.

This, along with the inability to use WinForms on Mac OS X, is a  
major hindrance to the adoption of Mono by Mac developers, at least  
in my opinion.
