Subject Re: [VOTE] Removing strong naming from all future versions
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2014 13:20:13 GMT
Here is my +1

All reasoning are here:
http://code972.com/blog/2014/04/68-ditching-strong-naming-for-lucene-net

We will publish both signed and non-signed. If someone can't change their
process for making their project not sign, they are most likely not using
nuget anyway. May be a bit harsh but that's mostly true.
