[Fedora-packaging] Rawhide's Mono stack

Dear Fedora Mono developers,

(ps if you are not in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Mono, I get
your name from the changelog of relevant *-sharp packages; please
consider adding your name)

The current Mono stack in post-alpha Rawhide is rather broken -- as of
today, on my machine (x86_64) none of these packages work:
- - monodevelop
- - banshee
- - tomboy
- - f-spot

It seems that the entire stack of libraries need to be recompiled --
gtk-sharp2, etc., and as such we should probably coordinate the
rebuilding process. If B depends on A, does a rebuild of A affect B with
Mono packages? Not so sure about this; if not, it makes life easier.

If there are dependencies, then one way I could suggest is that we all
commit updated specs, and then someone (Paul?) could do a chain build of
all the packages.

Another item: as I proposed in -devel recently, we could probably get
more Infrastructure support.
- - our own disttag, similar to the one for the gcc44 test rebuilds earlier
- - that would probably require our own mailing list, to coordinate
matters like this

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

- --
