Thanks Lluis for the link. Seeing as SharpDevelop is using the LGPL license
for the Resource Editor, I think I will be save by licensing the ported code
as LGPL as well. I will hopefully have the outstanding items completed
before the end of this month. Will keep you posted of my progress.

I also started looking into working on adding Web Service References to
projects. Have a pretty good understanding of what needs to be done. Will
use SharpDevelop as a point of reference, and port their implementation over
to fit into the MonoDevelop framework. I know you have done some work on
this as well a while back. I will start working on this as soon as I
completed the major functionality issues for the Release Editor.

That's a good start. I hope you can finish it so it can be integrated in
