MonoDevelop has a checkbox for "generate xml documentation." I see the option passed to the command line. But no XML. Please either remove the checkbox from MD when an MT target project is open (of this is the issue) or add this capability (preference on the later; this is very basic functionality that is missing).

Not sure if it's created and [re]moved or an smcs issue
-> monodevelop (for the former case)
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-11-07 09:10:32 UTC
It's an smcs bug.

a better explanation from mhutch himself @ http://stackoverflow.com/q/5644398/220643
the feature will come back once monotouch rebase itself on the upcoming mono 2.12 (instead of current 2.10)

How long until this rebase occurs its been a very long time without this feature working for MonoTouch projects?

Wont be fixing this, it will fix itself with the upgrade to the new 3.0 system.
