Description Lopatkin Ilja 2013-07-25 00:50:55 UTC
Everytime I run tests from MonoDevelop I get some files in test-results folders scattered all across the project directory. Personally, I have no need in them. It wouldn't have been the problem but they are confusing version control system and I have to take care of them. I don't want to pollute the ignore file of my VCS although it could have been the solution. I guess there should be a way to disable generation of those files in test-results.

Fixed - they're now created in another directory not part of the project tree.

IMO they're never belonging to the project tree, therefore an option turning them off doesn't really make sense. (No I didn't implement the 'test-results' :))

I have checked this issue and noticed that  "test-results"  is not generated under project. I have followed below steps:

1. Created NUnit library project.
2. Added two unit test case.
3. run test NUnit test case and checked  "test-results" into project.
