Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2013-11-19 20:44:19 UTC
I understand that you have to move with updates in the android sdk, however I feel you could have handled the de-capitalisation of resource folders better.

When creating a new project, you automatically create the resource folders with capitals, despite them no longer working (tested only in VS extension). I see that as a bug.

There is also no reason for existing projects to fail the way they do, just because the folders still retain the capitals. At least, there should be the option to rectify automatically, especially as it is clear that the extension is aware of what the issue is (which is an easy fix), but will not do what it can to aid the developer.
