[Ironruby-core] YAML for .NET

Yep I did take a look at that project.  It is only partially complete and
doesn't show any signs of further development; it was written by some
CompSci students as a project for their course and they are now busy with
other stuff.  They probably weren't allowed to use the reference
implementations for their work so their implementation is rather different
from the standard model and I also had some concerns about their use of
exceptions in the everyday logic.  So I thought it best to start from
scratch and try to stick more closely, algorithmically, to the PyYaml

What do people think?  I don't expect to do all the implementation myself so
would appreciate if anyone else wanted to get involved.

hi Pete!


There already is a .NET YAML implementation under Gnu Lesser Public License
on sourceforge.net -> http://yaml-net-parser.sourceforge.net/. I do not know
in what state it is, but you can take a look.

Has anyone made any progress with creating a YAML processor for .NET?  I
know that some people made some noise about it last Autumn.

Since there hasn't been any more info I thought I would take it on and set
up an open source project for it (http://code.google.com/p/yaml-dot-net/).
It uses the Gnu Lesser Public License, which should be OK for use in
IronRuby, etc.

Let me know if you are already doing something similar or would like to
