Summary: Seif Lotfy inquires about more Mono dependency which makes its way into GNOME’s core components
LAST year we thought that Zeitgeist had eventually given up on Mono, but Novell’s Banshee (outside Microsoft's MCP and thus a patent trap) and Tomboy push it back in. Seif Lotfy, who also puts Mono in Canonical’s repository, writes:
At Zeitgeist we are finishing up some nice Tomboy and Banshee Addins.
It is disheartening to see even Ubuntu folks helping Mono. Canonical's CTO distrusts Mono, but from people in IRC we are quickly learning that Mono boosters have infiltrated Ubuntu Forums (this includes self-acclaimed anti-Linux crowd and people who daemonise Techrights over there) where they constantly promote Mono. Watch out for entryism, Canonical. More on entryism in the next post. █
