C# Binaries for Linux

In ICE 3.7 and 3.6 C# (iceboxnet, slice2cs, ...) is not included in the Linux binaries.
Is there a reason why?
Is it a permanent situation or do you plan to add the support in comming releases?
Is there a alternativ way how to install the C# binaries (i.e. compile ICE from source)?

In my opinion ICE and C# is a very powerfull combination, cause you can run the same code on client and server side. Visual Studio provides great GUI building and debugging capabilities. And if you can run the same C# code base on a lean linux server, then this would be a big advantage.

    Hi Christoph,

    As 3.7 Ice for .NET is only supported on Windows platform, we still provide slice2cs in the ice-compilers package, but iceboxnet.exe and other .NET binaries are not included with Linux distributions.

    With 3.6 you might be able to build Ice for C# with mono from the source distributions but keep in mind that it is currently not supported with 3.7.
