[opensource-dev] Ironpython (was: Requesting Linden Response: Please move TPVP Topics to a different mailing list)

Compare this list to here: 
http://lists.ironpython.com/pipermail/users-ironpython.com
Although stated as a combined user/dev list and open to related DLR/CLR 
discussion...: http://lists.ironpython.com/listinfo.cgi/users-ironpython.com

... the signal to noise, on that mail-list, remains much more on the 
signal side, and it commonly gets more unmoderated traffic than this 
opensource-dev list.


And yes, I brought up ironpython with a shameless plug that Ironpython 
2.6 is almost in Debian stable. If anyone has done AST & resource 
compiles with ironpython probably has hacked their compile to include 
the entire standard python lib into a single exe, which makes it very 
easily shippable product with no install complexity for platforms that 
support Mono/.NET.

It would be nice if something like CMake was written in a DLR instead of 
native, so then any updates to CMake wouldn't need to wait to move out 
of the experimental cycles of the platforms in order to compile to 
stable (like Debian Lenny, for example).

Also note the potential pluggability of IL/DLR...
