[Ironpython-users] .NET Foundation

With the announcement today of .NET Foundation "umbrella" for all of Microsoft's open-sourced products, I am curious about what distinguishes the DLR/IronLanguages work from some of these others? Is it simply forgotten about by Microsoft, or is there some other reason it is left out as a black sheep? Or is it a conscious choice to stay disassociated with the Microsoft ecosystem as much as possible?


>From what I've seen, this set of repositories has been the most "open sourced" in the spirit of true open source - in that it relies heavily on (and accepts) pull requests from non-Microsoft persons. The others seem to often follow more of a "top down" contributions model.
