Yes, that’s an omission. It’s mentioned on our homepage.

You’ll need to come up with concrete things you want to improve about the node.js bindings, as I said. Along with improvements to C# that might form a good-sized project; I have limited experience with node (although plenty with Javascript), and basically none with C#, so I don’t know what needs doing or how much work it would be.

If it isn’t big enough for a GSoC project, you could combine language binding improvements with something else from the projects list.
