What are "Create Buddy Build Work Items" and "Work Items Project Name" settings? How to specify Work Items Project Name? How to install Buddy Build Work Item type?

Ok. Good question.
There is a Buddy Build work item and a Buddy Build Check-in Policy that can be used in conjunction with the Buddy Build Tool to help enforce a policy where checked-in code needs to be associated with a successful Buddy Build (pre-checkin validation) run. However, we chose not to make those available for download so that we do not add more confusion. However, we left the settings in the tool, so that probably added some confusion. So, you do not need to set any value for the "Work Items Project Name" and you can leave the value of "Create Buddy Build Work Items" as FALSE.
Now, if you are interested in using the Buddy Build Check-in Policy and Work Item type, please let us know. I can upload the MSI.
Thanks.
