The questions are: which codebases do we use? How clean is the code and how active is the community?
 
 
 
In general we should be looking for the biggest community. The one with 2x as many developers will win, unless both have achieved critical mass.
 
 
 
Any codebases we use we will want to be able to program in a Mono language. (Reasons for this do not fit into the margin) Finding managed bindings is a part of the development, and they are all out there, except for the driving logic, which is in progress.
