EmbeddedResource with two dots in Filename not working

See original GitHub issue

EmbeddedResource with two dots in the file name does not work, meaning GetManifestResourceNames does not return anything.


    <EmbeddedResource Include="Templates\ModelFile.scriban">

Does not work:

    <EmbeddedResource Include="Templates\ModelFile.cs.scriban">

This should either be fixed or documented properly as it’s really not something you look for.

As a workaround add WithCulture=“false” to the embedded resource. This is still a remaining issue in .net 6.

This is an ugly issue and still happens with .net 6.0.1 This prevents from having localization resources as embedded such as localization.en.json. @joeloff any updates?
