Mono Special Interest Group

The Mono SIG is a group of Fedora contributors that maintain Mono (and related) packages in Fedora.

Mission

The goal of the Mono SIG is to provide high-quality and usable Mono software packages to Fedora users and developers and to support others in creating and maintaining Mono packages. Also assist in ensuring users to have the best possible experience of Mono.

We want to ensure that Mono is supported correctly and as fully as possible across rawhide, the current core and the core-1 distros. We are not able to ensure everything works prior to core-1 at the moment.

How you can help

If you want to join but have no packaging experience we will be happy to help you learn, you can also get your start by joining the faithful testers team above. These users are willing testers of new Mono work and related package updates, occasionally a call to testing will be issued with instructions. The aim is to create a breeding ground for pushing good work into our stable repos and to arrange Mono based test days. You may also be asked to help triage specific bugs. This is your chance to make a big difference without investing much time. The only requirements is being on the mailing list and having a FAS and bugzilla account to give us feedback.
