I made a few python scripts to automatically optimize and publish my data..
Now i'm thinking about writing a .NET program to manage and run these scripts: the obvious way is invoking them in a different process from the .NET code but this seems downright ugly I was thinking about using IronPython and migrate my scripts into .NET.
Does anyone know if it's possible to invoke arcpy functions from IronPython? Thanks!

At the Esri Discussion Forums I found a 2011 response from @JasonScheirer which says:

Arcpy is built on arcgisscripting, which is in turn a CPython extension. You will not be able to use arcpy in IronPython.
