How to Ignore Test assemblies

I'm using Akka.NET, it has a Lib for helping with Nunit testing, it has a dependency on Nunit and gets mistaken as a test assembly so Tests are attempted to be run on the assembly, of course it has no tests, which causes a build failure.

Is there a way to ignore this assembly? everything looks like I have to include everything? but that's going to be a huge PITA and super error prone as a number of test libraries come in automatically through libraries ( may have many test assemblies, some of which you may not even realize exist)

    Hi Keith,

    Sorry, you are right, we still have this issue (tracked on GitHub). For now yes, you need to add assemblies explicitly. Please watch that GitHib issue to see when fix ready.

    Obviously somethings gone wrong in that this issue has been overlooked for quite a while, looking forward to your awesome support systems to kick and get it resolved quickly and delighting me, the customer :)
