Description cpdigger 2012-09-03 07:56:50 UTC
I want to add a resource.bundle to my monotouch project. But Monodevelop don't support to add is a single file because it's a package folder. Neither the patching of the .csproj direct work well. Then during the build I got the follwing error from Copying! 

The file "Resource.bundle" still exists their but it would detected as a folder not as a single file.

.bundles are actually directories, so you need to "Add Existing Directory" instead of "Add File".

As a feature enhancement, maybe we can special-case .bundle directories to behave like files for people who don't know that .bundles are actually directories.

Special casing directories would not be pretty :-\

I don't think it's worth the effort it would require.
