Working with unzipped project templates
To simplify the testing of project templates during development, unzipped templates will also be supported. To deploy an unzipped template, you can simply copy or save the project files to the correct project template location (local or server). In order to correctly recognize an unzipped template, and to correctly distinguish it from a template folder and non-template files, the template files must be correctly structured. More specifically, the following file structures for unzipped templates will be supported:
MyProject
  [MyProject.mdd]
  Layout.htm
  MyProject.mqd
  MiscFiles
    MyProjectSample.csv
    MySMScript.mrs
    OtherFileCopiedByUser.xyz
The unzipped project files must reside in a folder that matches the project name. This ensures that project folder can be distinguished from a normal template folder. Any folder that contains files, but does not contain template archives (.zip files) or Project_files, will be considered an unzipped template. In this case, all files in the project folder are considered part of the template.
