Who is responsible for this?

These people directly supported the production of this CD.

    Joseph Hill – Creator / Owner / Maintainer
    Ben Maurer – Testing / Oversight / Mono Contributor
    Brandon Hale – Master of Mono on Ubuntu
    Paco Martinez – Windows Installers

Along with these people, this CD would not be possible without the Mono Project developers (of course!), the contributors to each of the great projects that are included with the CD, as well as the Ubuntu contributors for providing such a great starting place, and support for custom LiveCDs.

Can I help?

There are lots of directions this project can go.  We need tutorials, new Mono projects, and lots of testing.

We are currently setting up a source repository account to manage the scripts to build the CD, as well as all of the custom code and documentation that are included on the CD.  

If you have encountered any bugs, bugzilla will be online shortly, but in the meantime please feel free to email monolive@mono-live.org with bugs, comments, or suggestions.
