How to debug GitExtensions
The installer is build using WiX. You need to install WiX when you want to build the installer. This can be downloaded here: http://wixtoolset.org/. If you do not want to build the installer, just open the solution and ignore the warning.
- Open the solution file (GitExtensions.VS2010.sln or GitExtensions.VS2012.sln)
- Hit F5 to compile and run GitExtensions
How to contribute code
- Login in github (you need an account)

Installing Nuget in Monodevelop/Xamarin Studio
Following steps will add nuget package management capabilities to your monoDevelop/Xamarin Studio. Installing nuget requires at least Monodevelop version 3.0.5.
OBS: Monodevelop 4.0 is Xamarin Studio
- On monoDevelop find Add-In manager (macOS is on program main menu, other OS's under tools)
- over the gallery tab, select "Manage repositories..." from the "Repositories" drop-down menu
- For monodevelop 3.0.5, add a new URL http://mrward.github.com/monodevelop-nuget-addin-repository/3.0.5/main.mrep otherwise, if using Xamarin Studio use http://mrward.github.com/monodevelop-nuget-addin-repository/4.0/main.mrep
- A new IDE extension option will appear, select the nuget package management
- To add nuget packages or maintain it, you right click either on the solution or in the references
On monoDevelop preferences, you will find a new "Nuget" option. Check the box that says "Enable package restore".
If by any reason your xbuild is not downloading and installing the packages, manually run the following command to get all the missing packages. Make sure you run it at the top level directory of your solution, like the example below:
