Reviews for this release

This is a useful ~template if you are writing your own Custom MSBuild Tasks. It essentially "auto wires up" the debugging by calling (under project / debugging window) the msbuild.exe (external program) and passing in the myfile.proj. So if you're writing custom MSBuild Tasks....then grab this template. I've been writing several custom tasks of late, so I installed it, and like it.

I really like the idea of a project template for MSBuild development and testing. It would be interesting to evolve this in the context of having a project in your solutions that was the "build" process for the solution - or for a set of solutions. This project template could certainly be used in that context.
