(…)If you have looked at Microsoft’s implementation of .NET or their shared source code, you will not be able to contribute to Mono.(…)
Can I please stop laughing now? I mean you guys are doing a open-source copy of .NET but you state in your own rules that a person cannot read .NET code and help developing mono? It’s rather obvious that you cannot copy proprietary code, but to forbid someone of reading it when it’s publicly available makes no sense. Everyone will read it but not to copy Microsoft’s magic formulas. People just want to know how they pulled it off and then mock them on how lame their solution was! :P
By the way if I email a part of the code to the creators of the mono-project, will the project die? Are you trying to convince anyone that the creators of the project never saw the .NET code when it’s available through reflection? Yeah right!
All this just makes the mono-project look like a bunch of amateurs fundamentalist fools.
