Description Redth 2012-10-05 10:39:54 UTC
Currently we have a [UsesPermission()] attribute, however there needs to also be a [Permission] attribute which could generate the following example in AndroidManifest.xml:

<permission android:name="com.pushsharp.test.permission.C2D_MESSAGE" android:protectionLevel="signature" />

This will be included in the next major release, as well as [PermissionGroup] and [PermissionTree]. Thanks for the feedback.
