Subject [jira] [Commented] (THRIFT-4535) Current state and future of .NET libraries ("csharp" and "netcore")?

Jens Geyer commented on THRIFT-4535:
------------------------------------

Your help is, like everybody elses, highly welcome. If we can stay on a professional plane,
that would be awesome. Making everybody else who contributed so far looking like an idiot
is not, and I will not tolerate that. Even if there have been made such-and-such decisions
in the past, there were good reasons for it. If we feel a certain need to change things, we
should absolutely do it, and you have my full support for it. But judging past decisions with
the knowledge of today does not help anybody, so let's look forward and focus on what we want
to do here.

> Hi,
> We are trying to use Thrift in one of our projects but we ran into some very fundamental
issues:
>  * The "csharp" project does not target ".NET Standard" and there's only a very old release
on nuget.org ( if [https://www.nuget.org/packages/Thrift/] is the official one).
>  * The "netcore" project does target ".NET Standard" but there's no release yet ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-4512 ) and
it also has a dependency on ASP.NET Core ( https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/THRIFT-4534 )
which makes it unusable in non-web projects.
> I'm wondering why there even are 2 separate projects for .NET? It's important to understand
that ".NET Core" is not a new programming API - It's just a new platform - very similar to
Silverlight, Mono, Windows Phone. This means that it would also be possible to support .NET
Core and the new ".NET Standard" (which represents a common set of APIs for all platforms)
with the existing "csharp" project. 
> Was this a deliberate decision - e.g. to make the "netcore" code the official successor
of the "csharp" code? 
> Would you be interested in merging the code back into one library? I'd be willing to
help if you want!
> It would be great to get one proper, up to date and official .NET library soon as there's
already quite a lot of weird forks on NuGet.org: https://www.nuget.org/packages?q=Thrift
