    Hello,

    recently you published news that you will abide to the C# naming standards when releasing new APIs - however, the new BuildReport API still uses the old convention. Would it be possible to change it to the new naming convention, before 2018.2 hits non-beta and will make it one more part of the API with the "weird" naming conventions?

    (I wanted to write this during the 2018.1 beta cycle when the API first appeared, but I completly forgot; so I hope it's not late now?)

    Thanks a lot for any response in advance!

    No, sorry. Not only is it too late now, but also, we're not abiding to the C# naming standards for all new APIs - the exact rule is a bit nuanced but loosely speaking it's only for things that are in the 'ECS world.' Over time this will be more and more of the APIs, but we are still building plenty of new things in the 'old' world and they're going to continue using the old naming conventions.

    Oh, I see; thanks for better clarification of the API naming then! :)
