From IronPython Cookbook

FePy (also known as the IronPython Community Edition) is an alternative distribution of IronPython. FePy is the creation of Seo Sanghyeon.

It focusses on Mono support and patches to improve compatibility with the Python standard library.

Since Mono version 1.2.3, FePy has actually been included as part of Mono.

Because of Microsoft's paranoia about distributing code they didn't write, it includes a few (only one in the last version I think) patches submitted by the community that fix as-yet-unfixed bugs in IronPython.

My favourite fix is the inspect module patch which gets inspect.getargspec working, a very useful function!
