Project Description
Extends the context menu of a Build Definition in Visual Studio 2010 (Team Explorer View) with commands to export and import the Build Process Parameters xaml.

While setting up and managing a build template is perfectly described in the Team Foundation Build Customization Guide http://vsarbuildguide.codeplex.com, managing the resulting Build Definitions lacks some tools and documentation.
Each Build Definition contains a ProcessParameters section which describes via xaml the build process. The ProcessParameters could not be versioned in Source Control, which makes it somehow difficult to manage large and growing builds.
Therefore the Build Process Commands have been written: you could simply export and import the build process parameters of a Build Definition and version it under Source Control.
In conjunction with the Clone Build Definition command of the TFS Powertools setting up a new build for a new branch gets incredible easy.
