TFS V1 Integration to WSS 3.0 Revisited !

It was officially announced that TFS V1 will not support WSS 3.0 awhile ago and I had my own post on that, but since countless requests are being sent to MS for having that solved before Orcas' release, they managed to have that working using a great group of MCS consultants and VSTS team members that did much of the leg work to flesh out the solution and test it thoroughly

It's still not an easy process and it still involves some unusual steps but it can be checked out on http://blogs.msdn.com/briankel/archive/2007/04/14/Configuring-Visual-Studio-2005-Team-Foundation-Server-with-Windows-SharePoint-Services-3.0.aspx till it's officially released. It's still a "Pre-Release" so it's own your own risk still :)

Deleting Team Builds ...

Been trying to remove some Testing Build Types that I created while playing with Team Build and got really lost, so I thought it might be helpful for playing geeks like me :)

Actually it's very easy ... All you have to do is go to Source Control Explorer, Get latest from the TeamBuildsTypes Project, remove those Builds you no longer need, and then Check in them back again ... Voila :)

Same applies to Editing Team Build types ... you have to check them out first ...

Hope that was helpful ...
