Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2015-06-29 10:27:16 UTC
When running an archive, dsym files get created and then stripped of their contents, when modifying just a non-compiled file (such as info.plist to modify a version number), rerunning the archive does not generate new dsym files and so dsyms are created that have no content and cannot be used to symbolcate crash logs.
