Sample Test Case
Unable to build Xamarin Forms project with dotnet sdk on linux.
Steps to reproduce-
1) Download latest dotnet sdk from https://github.com/dotnet/cli
2) Run dotnet restore and dotnet build on the attached project. (Build Fails when Xamarin.Forms is added as a package reference.)
3) The following error is reported-
/home/karthik/.nuget/packages/xamarin.forms/22.214.171.124-pre3/build/portable-win+net45+wp80+win81+wpa81+MonoAndroid10+Xamarin.iOS10+xamarinmac20/Xamarin.Forms.targets(40,3): error MSB4062: The "Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.FixedCreateCSharpManifestResourceName" task could not be loaded from the assembly /home/karthik/.nuget/packages/xamarin.forms/126.96.36.199-pre3/build/portable-win+net45+wp80+win81+wpa81+MonoAndroid10+Xamarin.iOS10+xamarinmac20/Xamarin.Forms.Build.Tasks.dll.

[/home/karthik/Desktop/dotnet-proj/sample/sample.csproj]
Please let us know in case there is any plan to fix this issue or any workaround possible to build the application with dependency on Xamarin.Forms on latest dotnet sdk.
This is not officially supported at this time. I would point you to the community for assistance in this, be it the Xamarin forums, StackOverflow, or similar.
