I would love it to become easier again :)

Which build tools and build chain are they using?
I understand that it is much easier if you don't need to worry about
being able to build from source.
But even then, there has not been a build of Monodevelop on the
Jenkins server for a while:
The last successful build of MonoDevelop for RPM was in November 2015
Same for Debian builds.
and the last successful build of a MonoDevelop tarball was in March 2016:
I guess if those builds would be functional again, it would be easier
for the distributions as well to package MonoDevelop.
I hope we can find solutions soon,
