Build log

If the build fails because the assemblies are too large, it still outputs the dll to the output directory. This causes Xamarin Studio to think it's up to date and not build it again. The build process can be seen in the attached log. Note that DeployOutputFiles happens before the scan phase.

@Mikayla is this still an issue? Given the size restrictions have been removed I think we can close this issue.

Yes, makes sense to me.
Comment 5 Naqeeb 2016-06-06 17:10:06 UTC
