  • SR-898 Unresolvable "ambiguous for type lookup" error when using multiple modules

Issue Description:


import MyFramework // <- has a public struct "A"

struct A {} // internal to my project

let a = MyFramework.A()  // <- Type MyFramework has no member "A"

It seems one can't reference the imported struct of the module MyFramework. If one uses `let a = A()` the internal struct is used (which, of course, makes sense).

A related issue came up recently on Stackoverflow:

The problem here is only a little bit different (the class/struct with the same name as the framework is in another framework, not in the local project as above):

// in framework Something
public struct A {}
public class Something {}

// in framework OtherThing
public struct A {}

// in the project
import Something
import OtherThing

let a = Something.A()  // <- "A" is not a member of type "Something"

I have attached a workspace with 2 framework projects and an iOS project that demonstrates the issue.
