Some of you may already know this, but we have started an OSGeo DotNET mailing list here:
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/dotnet so that all of us who are involved in developing .NET based open source GIS tools can coordinate our efforts to the degree possible (and as people are
SharpMap has certainly been a highly visible project for the past few years and we would really like to see you all join this community discussion list with OSGeo in part to help us all try to reduce duplication of effort on our various projects.
In fact, several of us on the mailing list have started thinking about putting together a common .NET namespace called "System.Spatial.xxx" where we can all work together to create common .NET tools with common API's. The MapWindow group has donated
the first contribution which is a fairly complete port of Proj4 to the System.Spatial.Projections namespace. This has already created a great opportunity to try to coordinate with and potentially merge that code with another port by FObermaier.
You can find the project here: http://dotspatial.codeplex.com.
P.S. Note that I've taken the liberty of listing SharpMap as a potential source of developers for the System.Spatial.Map namespace.
