   But since no-one is watching my fork I can only /cc you two (as I don't know 
anyone else here) and no-one else will have a chance to provide feedback. Also, 
I won't keep my fork forever so the discussion history would be lost. It would 
also be great if you guys could help at some point so having this in my fork is 
not ideal either.
   As I've said in my original post, I'd prefer a branch in this repo that I 
could create the PRs against. This would ensure that everything is in one 
place, that we can work together and that we don't break the production code 
until we're done. This seems to be what many other projects do in cases like 
   Your thoughts?

> Use new project system in "lib/csharp" and define supported platforms
> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: THRIFT-4541
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-4541
>             Project: Thrift
>          Issue Type: Umbrella
>          Components: C# - Library
>            Reporter: Christian Weiss
>            Priority: Major
> As discussed in THRIFT-4535, it would be great if we could update 
> "lib/csharp" to use the new "csproj" project system. This will allow us to 
> target multiple platforms and the new ".NET Standard" with a single project.
> It's possible to support pretty much every platform there is with this new 
> project format (see e.g. 
> [Newtonsoft.Json|https://github.com/JamesNK/Newtonsoft.Json/blob/master/Src/Newtonsoft.Json/Newtonsoft.Json.csproj]),
>  however supporting older platforms requires more work as this requires more 
> #if statements etc.
> This means that we have to decide which platforms we want to support!
> Targeting ".NET Standard 2.0" would be the easiest option as this version 
> [covers a much larger API 
> surface|https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dotnet/2017/08/14/announcing-net-standard-2-0/].
>  However, this would also mean that people have to use rather recent versions 
> of their platforms to use it, as .NET Standard 2.0 requires the following 
> minimum versions:
>  * .NET 4.6.1 (adding support for .NET 4.5 is no problem though)
>  * .NET Core 2.0
>  * Mono 5.4
>  * Xamarin.iOS 10.14
>  * Xamarin.Mac 3.8
>  * Xamarin.Android 8.0
>  * UWP 10.0.16299
> I will create a PR that targets .NET Standard 2.0 and .NET 4.5 to show what 
> the new project files would look like. If the approach is OK for you in 
> general, then I can try to add support for whatever minimum versions you'd 
> like to support.
