Description Mikhail Filippov 2016-10-11 12:35:17 UTC
I found usage XIA0001.DisabledLinkerRule for target name in file /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/iOS/Xamarin.iOS.Analysis.targets it is invalid target name. 
MsBuild has verification:
char[] illegalTargetNameCharacters = new char[] { '$', '@', '(', ')', '%', '*', '?', '.' };
If I try try build Xamarin project with MsBuild bundled with Mono I get error:
 "/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/iOS/Xamarin.iOS.Analysis.targets(7,10): error MSB5016: The name "XIA0001.DisabledLinkerRule" contains an invalid character ".”.
