not able to get to the mono site right now ... but i have a question: did the authors of the source for mono transfer over their copyright? it is not a work-for-hire, but did they sign over their copyright? which would now be owned by Novell. from what i remember (from beta downloads), each source file had a copyright from the author, and some even had multiple copyrights from the individual authors that worked on it over time. if an author still had copyright, couldn't i just ask them for a specific piece of code that i wanted, and ignore the whole GPL nonsense?
