Open Xamarin Studio
Open an android app
Change build to Release
Choose Create new keystore, follow directions, create it in ~. You get a permission error and "Failed to create a new keystore"
if you create a new keystore in a hidden directory, like ~/.Android/ (the default place for keystores for java devs, evidently), because it's hidden, you can't open it in the dialog - even if you have show hidden files on for the OS. like, if you can see it in finder, you still can't see it in the open dialog
the secondary issue is a problem for calabash specifically, because it looks for the debug keystore in ~/.android/debug.keystore.
I can't repro the permission error with the description here. Can you describe it more completely?
I assume it is related to that the dialog should NOT actually be a Open File Dialog but rather a Save File Dialog. It must be able to choose a new file. Or, this should be examined with new dialog anyways.
Since Greg is working on Publish Android Package dialog, it would make sense to reassign this to him too.
Fixed in publishing workflow changes.
