Hi. SPM packages referenced as local folders in Xcode (as opposed to repository URL) are no longer parsed and built in Xcode 12.5 when those folders are symlinks. This used to work in Xcode 12.4 and earlier versions.
Root/ MyWorkspace.xcworkspace MySwiftPackage (symlink to another location, like ../MySwiftPackage)
where the Xcode workspace references the local symlink like this (MyWorkspace.xcworkspace/contents.xcworkspacedata):
<FileRef location = "group:MySwiftPackage"> </FileRef>
no longer works. The package no longer appears as a package within Xcode (icon is like a terminal-stamped file), and it's not built anymore.
My colleague Benoit filed a feedback with that a couple months ago: FB9007750
We use symlinks to more rationally organize shared code in the file system. So my question is: is this feature temporarily broken, or is it the new normal of SPM in Xcode?
