Contribution to Registry tasks

Jul 9, 2013 at 2:29 AM
I wish to make a contribution to MSBuild Extension Pack in relation to the registry tasks. Please advise me on how to proceed.

In summary, my proposed contribution to the MSBuild.ExtensionPack.Computer.Registry task is:
  • Add a task action to delete a registry value.
  • Add a task action to test if a registry value exists.
  • Correct the summary description of the Data property (the existing statement about reading the Default Value is false).
  • In relation to the CheckEmpty() task action, change the key open mode from write to read, as only read is required.
  • Corrects the log failure message for Get(), to remove the incorrect reference to Default values.
  • Update the summary and example code accordingly.
I sent an email communication to, but apparently this address is not actively monitored, so I am hoping that this is the correct forum for contributions.

Just to be clear, I have already developed a solution. I am just looking for an Admin to accept my code contribution.

Hi Sean

Could you create an Issue and attach your code, or add a link here to it.

Many thanks, I look forward to the contribution.
