Description Stephen McConnel 2012-10-02 16:28:23 UTC
The CoreCompile Target in Microsoft.CSharp.targets incorrectly lists @(DocFileItem) as one of the Inputs.  It is actually one of the Outputs.  Having this wrong can cause any project that defines DocumentationFile to compile even when nothing has changed.
