No, nothing depends on it. I just wonder why this library is still 
available for downloading. It's totally obsolete and should be deleted.

It's really hard to follow the mono project and to determine which is 
the latest version of the software. On September last year I was asking 
for keeping the "sources-stable" webpage uptodate 
(http://lists.ximian.com/pipermail/mono-list/2011-September/047726.html), but 
this only worked until mono 2.10.6.

It would be really great, if this page or any other page is tracking the 
movement of development for the stable releases. It's too hard for 
package maintainers to follow the project at all. I know that xamarin 
has lots of things to do at the moment, but there are still some distros 
out there which are try to support mono and the mono stack in their 

If any other mono developer read this mail, please give some more 
feedback on the development. It would be enough to give us (package 
maintainer) more information which version of mono/sharp-libraries are 
the latest stable release like on the "sources-stable" webpage!
