Firstly, as seen here:
NuGet requires Mono > 3.x.
My distro packaged 2.x, so I downloaded the latest source for Mono:
However I ran into the issue seen here:
So, I grabbed the latest mono source from git. That compiled and installed cleanly.
Now trying to build nuget, I ran into expected issues with test cases not passing. Editing build.sh:
-xbuild Build/Build.proj /p:Configuration="Mono Release" /t:GoMono
+xbuild Build/Build.proj /p:Configuration="Mono Release" /t:GoMonoNoTests
To not run tests made the build complete successfully.
nuget install worked great
nuget spec <assembly> worked, but the resulting nuspec was missing a trailing newline.
nuget pack worked, except that colored warning lines were corrupted. Setting TERM=dumb worked around this issue. Maybe a --no-color option is in order.
nuget push worked correctly.
I did not run into many of the issues reported in the issue tracker. Example:
