Mails like this are really irritating. I've been working on MonoDevelop
for more than two years now, doing my best to make MD useful, stable and
easy to use, and I spent many hours of my free time on it. You say
that's not enough? sorry, I'll try to do it better in my next life.

If you installed a package from a distro and it doesn't work at all, go
complain the disto.

Waiting for somebody to write it.

You are missing that this is an open source project. The core
development team is very small and can't do everything. I'm tired of
asking the community to contribute tutorials and guides. Nobody has yet
written one that can help you. Sorry about that, but please don't blame
the development team.
