Vincent Untz posted our Mono policy yesterday, which states very clearly GNOME's stance on the issue. No part of the core platform can depend on Mono, and no part of the desktop suit can pick up a new Mono dependency without going through the module approval process again. A Mono dependency does not exclude an application from consideration as part of the GNOME desktop suite, or of any suite other than the core development platform.
I think that's a good basic outline for the policy: there's no need for GNOME to reject all C# programs entirely outside the core. But I think that when it considers them, it should not consider each one in isolation. It's important to keep an eye on the total amount of C# usage too. In effect, to ask, "How bad would it be if we had to drop them all?" The point is that we don't want to lead ourself into a position where the idea of dropping all C# programs is so painful that we would be tempted to do something more problematical to avoid it. _______________________________________________ foundation-list mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/foundation-list
