Mono Project Sure, everyone knows Tomboy, F-spot, Beagle, MonoDevelop, Muine, Blam! or Monodoc. But there are a lot of other interesting Mono/GTK# applications out there that need your attention. Join us for a quick listing of the not-so-well-known GTK# apps and you will witness yourself that the platform is flourishing.

Yes, it would be possible to create an autopackage of Mono and also Mono apps, that way if you tried to install say F-Spot and Mono was not available, autopackage could resolve that dependency transparently for any user.

So far nobody has stepped up to produce one. One issue that would be nice to resolve is using ELFTLS at runtime so all users get the performance boost.

Otherwise to be honest I think it'd be OK to ship an autopackage that depends on ELFTLS. It's been available since Red Hat 9, and I think it's alright to require a modern distribution to run Mono.
