are you components changing that often that you need to "always" download
all the source? Are your component projects part of your main project's
solution? If so, they should be built wen you build your main project
assuming your main project has a project reference to the required
I'm not really understanding the problem I guess.
Having the source to components while developing applications that consume
them is the greatest luxury as you can really chase down bugs when they
occur, but I'm sure you already know this.
If data size is the issue, what is the difference between a bloated .net
assembly and the source to create it? I would think the source is smaller?
Sorry for not directly answering your question. ;0)
