I can't seem to find docs on how it works. I recently posted asking how to get another assembly added to the solution that vsewss creates, but got no responses.

There have got to be people somewhere that know about this, right

You can check the WSS v3 SDK regarding solution files.

Some short points:

the DDF (Diamond Definition File) determines what files are added to WSP file (really just a CAB) and where they are placed in WSP.

The Manifest.xml tells STSADM.EXE where to place the files contained in the WSP file on the server (/bin, GAC, controltemplates etc)

Hi Dennis

Yep - I'm using them - although having many problems. The SDK was only released on 22nd January, but is very helpful, as are a number of blogs. That's all I've found so far - the sdk is at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx FamilyID=05E0DD12-8394-402B-8936-A07FE8AFAFFD&displaylang=en

If you find any more detail, be sure to post - thanks
