Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2013-08-08 11:30:14 UTC
Structure versioning is an easy and very efficient way of catching bugs due to installations with native/managed mismatch.

We do it with mscorlib and it has catched countless bugs.

Can we have a similar thing on Mono.Posix?

Recently I bumped into such a situation with 28e16142fa261d0cd0acad319e8c00a9bd3c7025 and this lead to most of a week spending debugging a sgen crash.
