Wondering about the future of Mono on Ubuntu

Hello Everyone,

I'm a software engineer, long time Ubuntu/Xubuntu user, and brand new
member of this list. I've also long been a fan of the C# language and
the Mono project as a whole.

I know that, for a while, Ubuntu either included or seriously considered
including Mono as part of the default installation. But then,suddenly,
Mono seems to have fell out of favor and, as I undertand it, Mono is
pretty much dead on Ubuntu.

If this is true, are there any plans to bring it back into the official
installation since the MS announcements? If so, is there a timeline as
to when that might happen? Is the Mono Team on Launchpad the place to be
for Mono related work? I see they haven't updated anything in about 4
years so I thought I'd ask.

I'm really interested in working on anything I can related to Mono on
Ubuntu but am kind of looking for where I need to go just to get
started. The landscape seems pretty barren and cold...
