Hi, we have now integrated azure and msdeploy in 1.5.0; functionality that certainly isn't and probably won't be available on other platforms than Microsoft.NET/Windows.
But still we have surrounding things. dotnet-application, for example, supports packaging of runnables (config + exe/dll + deps) in a zip; that is available to all platforms. https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NPANDAY-493 Now, I want to create an XDT-plugin (XmlDocumentTransform) that enables transformation of config-files in the packaging process (usually you wouldn't like your local web.config/app.config) to be packaged unchanged. XDT is provided by MSBuild, but there is also an alternative implementation available, that maybe runs, or at least could be changed to run on mono, too (http://code.google.com/p/xdt/). How much extra effort would it be worth to choose that implementation instead of Microsofts, in order to support it on !win? Alternatively we could also offer XSL-transformations only. Functional, though not as comfortable as XDT. Anybody willing to help making XDT work on Mono? https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NPANDAY-486 Then, we also think to implement MSBuild. Again, we have the option to support Xbuild as well; does anybody want to support, doing this? any comments? Disclaimer: I'm not (yet) using Mono at all. Not on Windows, neither on my Mac. _ Lars
