We have have a small ASP.NET MVC web application that we develop and publish to a remote server using Visual Studio One-Click Web Publishing. We maintain our code in revision control, make edits, and trust one another on our small team to follow publishing guidelines both to test and production.
However, when we switch from one to another publisher, the whole site gets republished because timestamps are different, both on the source files (due to SVN functionality) and binaries (pretty much unavoidable), resulting in a lengthier process and downtime.
I know there are MSDeploy flags to publish using file hashes instead. Is there a way to enable these for use from the One-Click Publish interaction?
(see 'usechecksum' at Web Deploy Operation Settings for information on this flag)
