Moonlight: Silverlight 2.0 API support
======================================

	If you want to support the Silverlight 2.0 API (managed
	support, this includes the Mono runtime and .NET APIs to run
	apps) you will need in addition to:

		* Install Mono from SVN (you need both the mono and
	  	  mcs modules).

		  Use the --with-moonlight=yes option to configure



>From looking through the mono configure file it looks like the
--with-moonlight option just adds the required support to mono that
Moonlight needs to run (Silverlight 2 requires a .NET runtime,
Silverlight 1 was entirely independent of a .NET runtime).

So it appears all that is needed to keep Moonlight out of Fedora is to
not package the Moonlight tarball which is a separate download.
