OK, I will begin by developing in MonoDevelop trunk and submit a diff
patch when I have something working to be committed.

I will type up a list of features we will want in the initial version of
the add-in and then use it for comparison to make sure they will have
support for everything.  Of course, I will post the list here for
feedback.  Then, we can start the communication with the GitSharp team.

I will also look into creating mockups of the workflow in Balsamiq
Mockups[1].  They provide free licenses to open source projects.  This
will allow feedback on the workflow before any time is wasted on

I forked their project with my GitHub account[2] and I will use this fork
for developing the add-in.
