Description Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2016-10-25 15:19:05 UTC
The following appear to be options that accept "enum" values but do not document what those values may be:

--linkskip=VALUE       Skip linking of the specified assembly

--profile=VALUE        (Obsoleted in favor of --target-framework) Specify
                         the .NET profile to use (defaults to '.

--sdk=VALUE            Specifies the SDK version to compile against (
                         version, for example "10.9")

--tls-provider=VALUE   Specify the default TLS provider

                       Specify the default HTTP Message Handler

The marshal-*-exceptions options will get better help here: https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/pull/1403

For --linkskip, the option takes the name of an assembly (so no enum).
For --sdk, the option takes a version (no enum here either).

We can probably just hide the --profile option, since it's deprecated.

--tls-provider and --http-message-handler should still get better help though.
