For the past few months a group of us at,, IdeaVine (with special thanks to JetBrains) have been working to create a build system for the .Net open source community.  I am happy to announce (here at at least) that as of now it is officially alive and kicking.

I am not going to give a full rundown on the details, as James Kovacs has done a great job of that here.  Check out the post and the site and let us know your thoughts.

Also, if you would like to get your project hosted check out this information.
