[edit] Mono Special Interest Group

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

[edit] 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.
