[Monodevelop-devel] GSoC project

Sorry for the late reply.

I'm actually more interested in the use of the diagram for interactively
exploring class relationships, like the visual studio class diagram tool
allows. Editing would be good too, but I think it could be considered a
stretch goal for GSoC. The important thing is a really nice canvas widget
and solid core functionality.

So yes, gtk# would be needed for the widget. The MonoDevelop type system
can provide all the data and the MonoDevelop refactoring systems can be
used for editing.

Compatibility with the VS .cd format would be nice but isn't a must-have.
