I've implemented a task for capturing the execution of a NAnt build and
saving it (simplified) as a Visual Studio 2010 solution, so that subsequent
rebuilds can be done from the IDE. This should make debugging easier (just
hit F5 and you're done!). The tool is currently on github:
https://github.com/skolima/generate-msbuild . Are there any projects I
should test it against? So far it works for NAnt and CruiseControl.Net.
Also, I'd like to get this merged into NAnt main tree - can any commiter
suggest what would be the most easy form to use it? I was thinking of
implementing it as a command line switch for NAnt (currently it's a task
that has to be declared inside the build file)? Alternatively, since this is
basically a logger, I can add it as a fourth one (after Default, Mail and
Xml). I'm open to any suggestions - I'll upload a patch once the tool is
ready for inclusion.
The tool works on Mono as well (2.11, so git head only for now).

PS. I know that the number one issue for improvement are code comments.
