Subject RE: .Net Core Compatibility
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2016 18:17:10 GMT
When we worked on Checkstyle/Findbugs issues, we enabled checks which we've already fixed in
Checkstyle configuration, and they became build breaks for existing build process, while other
violations were still allowed. 

Ideally we should have something similar here, a step of the build which runs a subset of
checks and fails if any check which is already fixed is violated. Does CoreCLR portability
analyzer support such use? Such approach would also require fixing issues not per-project
but per-issue (or configuring different sets of checks for different projects, but I think
this might be more complicated, we did it for Checkstyle only for one final check)

Alternatively we could have a dedicated build job in AppVeyor which focuses on running portability
analyzer and reports the number of violations, and this number must not increase for each

Much appreciated!

This should be doable. Does the analyzer need to be installed or can we e.g. make a MBSBuild
task to download the analyzer to our build machines and apply it?

This should, in principle, be better. But maintaining multiple build files could be more of
a challenge than is worth it. Maybe we do that once full sub-projects compile on CoreCLR?
I believe for this to work, all REEF devs will have to also install CoreCLR on their machines,
