There are binaries, but it's probably because they're .NET ones instead of
standard ELF one which are causing the false positive.

> W: monodoc no-documentation

There is some external documentation, but it requires mod-mono and xsp to be
installed and as the package works fine without those extras, I felt it was
better to exclude them. I will include them if needs be.

You have to. By default, all that is mono installs to /usr/lib. Now, if I'm on
an x86_64 or any other non-32 bit architecture, %{_libdir} is /usr/lib64. This
breaks a lot of stuff under Mono (from what I've seen).

Please see my bit on the fedorawiki on packaging for mono.

It should ;-)

Mono itself is a right mix of licences. monodoc is GPL. I can't comment on the
legal cloud around RH allowing mono in, but if a licence says GPL (or LGPL, BSD
or the likes), then I'm good with it.

Yes. As should AUTHORS and a couple of others.

Which version of mono have you got on the 64 bit box? I'm on 1.1.3 and it
compiled without a hitch.

Good :-)

I can't see any.

.NET doesn't use .so (as such). Again, see my piece on the fedora wiki for
packaging for mono

As such, there aren't really devel packages for mono (other than mono-devel that

monodoc is used inside of monodevelop and won't run outside of it.

I can't get mock to work, so I just compile it on the laptop and x86_64 box!

monodoc is not designed to work standalone.
