Hello All,

I'm trying to work out the best way to add multiple version nunit support tot
he nunit addin. I'm wondering what exactly this fragment of addin.xml means:

    <Extension path="/MonoDevelop/Core/SupportPackages">
        <Condition id="PackageNotInstalled" name="mono-nunit" version="2.7">
            <Package name="nunit" version="2.4" clrVersion="Default">
                <Assembly file="nunit.core.dll" />
                <Assembly file="nunit.core.interfaces.dll" />
                <Assembly file="nunit.framework.dll" />

Does this mean:

If mono-nunit == 2.7 is not installed, create a pseudo package called nunit-2.4
containing the nunit dlls shipped with monodevelop?

To my mind the version 2.7 part looks like it is expecting it from mono 2.7, so 
what this looks like it does is "always" create an nunit package unless you
have quite an old unstable mono install?

I have a slight problem, that even if my project explicitly links against 2.5
dlls, monodevelop forces it to use 2.4, could this be the cause?

Many thanks
