I added a new file to monodevelop and the namespace was weird:
Generated: namespace MonoDevelop.MacDev.MonoDevelop.MacDev.PlistEditor
Expected: namespace MonoDevelop.MacDev.PlistEditor
Look at the project's default namespace settings.
It's 'MonoDevelop.MacDev'. I would expect that if the default namespace were set to 'MonoDevelop.MacDev' it would notice the duplication when appending the name of the directory as part of the namespace. Maybe this is not the desired behaviour but it's what I expected.
Looking at the project options, it's set to use the default namespace with the directory name appended. the problem is that some of the directories were set up as if it were simply based on the directory.
The problem with eliminating 'duplication' is that we'd break a valid use - a duplicated namespace component - in order to work around broken project layouts like this.
