LinkMania: HowTo create a custom build step for MSBuild

There is not much to writing extensions to msbuild but I've put together afew links as a starting point.

The documentation would be a great place to start :) and it is very complete with alot of examples: How To: Write a Task

There are also a couple of really good posts on the msbuild team blog about this:
How To: Implementing Custom Tasks - Part I
How To: Implementing Custom Tasks - Part II
How To: Debug a custom MSBuild task using Visual Studio

There is also a great MSDN article on how the msbuild engine works and howto extended it here: Inside MSBuild Compile Apps Your Way With Custom Tasks For The Microsoft Build Engine
