Description cliff 2014-09-20 18:39:22 UTC
Any chance of changing the solution template so that it doesn't create the non-standard directory structure it does today. I'd expect the following:

- SolutionDir
----> solutionDir.iOS
----> SolutionDir.Android
----> SolutionDir.WinPhone
----> SolutionDir (could also be ".Core", ".Common", or ".Shared" suffix)
----- solution.sln

Instead we get: 
- SolutionDir 
----> SolutionDir 
      ----> SolutionDir.iOS 
      ----> SolutionDir.Android 
      ----> SolutionDir.WinPhone 
      ----> SolutionDir
      ----- solution.sln

Which needlessly extends the paths to files for very little value.

we are getting directory structure as mentioned in description.
- SolutionDir 
----> SolutionDir 
      ----> SolutionDir.iOS 
      ----> SolutionDir.Android 
      ----> SolutionDir.WinPhone

This issue was fixed with latest changes in the templates (part of XVS 4.3 currently in alpha).

For the QA team, please verify with latest C9 bits.

Thanks for reporting!
