CoreCLR How To
There are quite a few wiki pages about CoreCLR (itself), how it is used in the Moonlight plugin to provide a secure sandbox, it's current status (ok, that part is not up to date ;-) and how we validate all of this.
So what was missing was not facts but orientation. It kind of make sense, most people are not doing an open source implementation of Silverlight, we are. However we're providing a lot of cool (yes it is ;-) stuff within - stuff, like coreclr, xaml, the cecil-based linker... that can be reused in other projects. Ok, I agree it is an easy prediction since most of them already are :-).
So the missing piece is an how to for people wishing to enable CoreCLR when embeding mono in their own application. It does not bring a lot of new facts but, hopefully, it will order them in a more useful way.
Now that this is completed I'll (slowly) be reviewing/updating the related wiki pages. I do not expect many changes (for most of them) since what's described simply does not change often. Old text can become history, but it won't turn false from being old alone ;-). In any case I'll do my best to remove any duplication, bad links... and yes a bit of freshening up.
Once this is done new updates will be feedback based (i.e. no feedback, no update) unless the design changes drastically. Have fun :-).
