.NET 2.0 on Hold for mojoPortal

I've tried several tests now deploying mojoPortal compiled in VS 2005 on mono without success so I will have to wait to start developing in VS 2005 until it works. I'm getting a 500 error with no real details in the apache error log so I'm not sure how to proceed, other than to periodically update mono/xsp/mod_mono from svn and try again.

I'm also going to try creating some small test projects in VS 2005 and see if I can get any of them to work. For now work will proceed in VS 2003

If any of you have good luck getting a web project built in VS 2005 to work on mono please let me know any tips for making it work.

Update 11/17/2005
Miguel posted a good bit of information today about where things stand in the mono project including info about the progress on .NET 2.0 features. It sounds like Master Pages is already implemented and from other things I've read recently I get the impression that to use the 2.0 stuff that is there you have to run xsp2 instead of xsp which may account for why may test deployment built in VS 2005 didn't work on my mono test machine. I do plan to move forward in VS 2005 as soon as possible but there are a number of things that I need to work through and test before that can happen. For one thing I don't want a build of mojoPortal that I can't run at my hosting company www.Grokthis.net so I will have to be sure I am happy with the way it works on my demo server before I can even begin thinking about trying to convince them to set things up for 2.0. I also want to be sure I can provide any configuration information needed so that it is easy for others to get things running on their mono servers. In short I think there will be at least one more release of mojoPortal for the 1.1 framework before we start making the move forward down the 2.0 path. There are a lot of good things to look forward to but also a lot of new things to learn.
