First congrats on shipping!
I looked through the guidance the second I got an email alert from codeplex...we've been waiting for this for quite some time.
Here's my Feedback:
I'm surprised to see manual/SharePoint approval in the WF4 build activitiies not being included.
I'm also really surprised to see a complete lack of any mention of the architecture tools being plugged into/customized from the Team Build activites. Especially when the Architecture guidance was so good.
I'm also disappointed that customizing WF4.0 build activities for Java/Maven/Ant not being included at all...did you guys even talk to Martin Woodward?
Lastly I was really hoping that customizing Team Build Activities for use with the TFS SDK for say version control / work item operations (create branch on build / merge code on successfully BVT) weren't included or explored.
The anticipation for this guiadance has been building over the last 6 months, and I had high hopes that this would be the comprehensive guidance for how to actually customize Team Build. I hope over time it will be....if there's continued investment...so
1) With what appears to be missing gaps in the guidance...what's the plan for ongoing development of new modules for ATE?
2) What's the shipping schedule for the next round of updates?
3) The sample build xaml file...BRD Lite....is there a BRD Full that could be made available? Why is just the Lite version being included in the guidance...was this just a timing decision for V1...see questions 1 and 2..
