[IronPython] Arright dangit! Where is the OFFICIAL IronPython source code?

Ubuntu doesn't have the latest version of Mono, which is required for
the .NET 4.0 equivalent compiler (dmcs). You would have to build Mono
from sources to get it. Alternatively, most other distributions seem
to use the latest version (in particular, OpenSUSE and RHEL are
actively supported by Mono). You can get a ready-made OpenSUSE VM from
the Mono site.

You may not even need to build IronPython using Mono. I'm using
msbuild binaries on OpenSUSE at the moment and haven't had any issues

Also, buying a Mac for testing appears to be the only option, since
they don't allow the use of MacOS in VMs (legally, anyway). (I'm sure
that will be taken into consideration when setting up CI, right...?)
