Description Peter Collins 2017-02-15 20:58:05 UTC
This is a relatively trivial issue, but an assert for one of my 'Clean' tests is now failing for a sample which has recently been updated to Support / Play Services packages which use Xamarin.Build.Download. The specific sample in question here can be found below:


## Expected Behavior ##
After building and then cleaning a project, both obj and bin folders should be empty. 

## Actual Behavior ##
After building and cleaning a project, a new empty folder `$(IntermidateOutputDir)/XbdMerge` is left behind:

## Environment ##

This looks related: https://github.com/xamarin/XamarinComponents/commit/2eb26fcdf9d34decc5474231d88c1929b756a020

Yeah that commit should fix this.  Please try at least Xamarin.Build.Download v0.4.4 to see if it clears up.
