Hello everyone and thank you for the feedback. We are actively investigating ways to improve how Visual Studio handles project content. This suggestion falls into that category. Unfortunately, we will not be able to address this feedback for the Visual Studio 2015 release. We will update the community when our plans in this area have gained more clarity.
Visual Studio – VS IDE Project and Build TeamAnonymous commented
1. Have the Visual Studio team publish in Github an API specification for what Visual Studio does with project files.
2. Ask for community feedback.
3. Use that as the basis for requirements for this new functilnality
This drives the Visual Studio team to build actual requirements and lay out a business case for spending $X on implementing it.
Hammer that out until it is ready to send out for a RFP.
