Even after having looked at the code, I do not really understand that if you've never intended
to deprecate one.

Thank god we are now blessed with THRIFT-4535. You're so damn clever, thank you.

 And given that there is no release of "netcore" (at least I haven't seen one) I'd say it's
not really "alive" yet.

Again, this is FOSS. If you need a release, stop complaining and prepare one. Everybody can
just pull the code easily otherwise, so there is no absolute (in a philosophical sense) need
for a "release". It might make things easier, but nobody will die if there is none.)

> 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
