Flibitijibibo has completely forked MonoGame and is doing a lot of cleanup to make it a better alternative for XNA on open desktop systems. That sounds great, because his MonoGame-SDL2 fork has always worked better on Linux than the official MonoGame libraries, and the Xamarin team seems to be concentrating too much on mobile platforms for my taste.
Anything that’s good for Linux is good for me as I see it – so I’m pitching in to help. This is also the perfect excuse for me to get a more practical grasp of Git, which I used for a few classes before – then promptly forgot since I almost never work on team projects.
