Nice, and welcome :) I have a couple of ideas for starting:

- Right now, the build is far from ideal, we cannot even use standard 
dependency paths. Say, we are encouraged to use something like /devel to 
put our own builds, to not conflict with existing stable installation. 
Current fsharpbinding build cannot work with that.
   - I got some fix for build issue locally [*1] but it's still far less 
- After you get "make install" successfully done, F# projects still 
doesn't show up. I *assume* this is due to some monodevelop changes (in 
addin path name or whatever).
- Add some more F# source templates like we have for C# or VB. I assume 
this is easy.

I have some more ideas but won't be good starters :) Anyways hope this
