Description PJ 2012-08-08 17:23:15 UTC
Expected behavior: Deploy to device log should indicate that no change was made to the data on the device.

Actual behavior: Deploy to device indicates that the assemblies were re-uploaded.


Nexus 7 JellyBean

Mountain Lion

MFA 4.2.5
Mono 2.10.9_!1

This was the FastDev issue that was never fixed, so this is not a regression. Not sure if it was ever filed. I did, however, hear that this issue should have been fixed once and for all so I'm filing.

I could reproduce the FastDev issue in the following test environment

HTC flyer with HoneyComb 3.2.1


MFA  4.2.5
Mono 2.10.9

The presence of this message doesn't indicate that the assemblies were actually uploaded. We don't know in advance whether assemblies will be uploaded or not, this is only determined during the upload phase. The only way you can tell for sure is to look at MonoDevelop's android log which prints each uploaded or skipped assembly.

Maybe the phase could have a better name, like "Synchronizing assemblies with device". Or if we printed all the uploaded or skipped assemblies in the upload pad, it would also be clearer.

This was fixed.
