Hi guys,

Have you any experience in building applications inside docker containers.

The docker container cannot find postsharp.

    Unfortunately, this use case is currently not tested and not supported.

    The build-time component of PostSharp is distributed as a NuGet package. It is usually restored before the build into the "packages" folder of the solution. This is not different from other NuGet packages and I wouldn't expect any issue here. However PostSharp also unpacks compiler components and related files into "c:\ProgramData\PostSharp\" and maybe this is what is causing compatibility issue with docker containers.

    The support for docker is not currently in our roadmap. Could you please let us know how important this support is for you and what is the actual use case?
