Description Sebastien Pouliot 2011-10-23 12:26:51 UTC
'mmp' has a few options* that can be useful to users and allow them to workaround some issues, e.g. bug #1528. However the "Create Mac Installer" UI does not let users specify any extra arguments (like MonoTouch UI allows).

* add i18n assemblies (but that would be even better with it's own GUI, like MT)
* --linkskip (which would provide a workaround for #1528)

MonoMac addin should also provide UI for mmp's  --i18n=VALUE (from bug #2291)

I've got UI now for the i18n option and a "Extra args" text field like mtouch has.

Now all I gotta do is implement the MonoMacBuildExtension
