Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-12 14:21:25 UTC
When compiling Newtonsoft.Json, mcs emits many warnings about the format of the doc comments. It seems it doesn't understand the {} syntax for generics.

JsonWriter.cs(1037,25): warning CS1584: XML comment on `Newtonsoft.Json.JsonWriter.WriteValue(System.TimeSpan?)' has syntactically incorrect cref attribute `Nullable{TimeSpan}'
