Description Chris Hamons 2015-03-25 12:34:55 UTC
"All projects were created in Xamarin Studio. And yes, you are right, when I’m adding Bcl.Async and Bcl.Build to the secondary PCL, - build passes OK. It’s only when Bcl.Build is added to the main, Unified API application project, it fails. The reason to include Bcl.Build in main project is because it gives a warning that it should be included in all project referencing the projects using it."
