Port Octopus to .NET Core
Moving Octopus Server/Tentacle/Calamari to .NET Core would extend the reach of Octopus Server to other platforms.
We have completed an internal port of Octopus Server to Linux for our internal use. However it is not quite ready for public consumption as it has some rough edges. We’ve opened https://github.com/OctopusDeploy/Issues/issues/6049 to track the public release. It is something we are planning, but we have not committed to any particular timeline.
Is this just dead in the water to be able to have octopus server on linux? I'd love to be able to spin it up as a container and not have to have a windows docker host
Could it be time to revisit this now that Core 2.0 has been released (and Visual Studio for Mac is stable). It could be an opportune time to re-capture all the folks that only left .NET due to the Window's dependency and are now returning and deploying .NET Core to linux and docker setups.

In addition, porting calamari to .NET Core would enable to get rid of mono on Linux-like targets (and it would be great)

Run octopus server on Linux would be great - no reason it could not!

Porting Tentacle/Calamari to .NET Core would enable deployments on Windows Nano Server also.
