Transitive references in .Net Core 1.1

While developing a sample web app in .NET Core 1.1 and Visual Studio 2017 RC, I realized the following:

enter image description here

As you can see:


  • ClassLibrary3 has a reference to ClassLibrary2,

  • and ClassLibrary2 has a reference to ClassLibrary1



I wrote a simple method in class Class3 of ClassLibrary3 project, and the Intellisense allowed me to use Class1 just writing the name of the class, I mean, without doing an explicit reference to ClassLibrary1 project.

Am I missing some point here? I don't want somebody simply comes and overlooks ClassLibrary2.

Thanks.

Transitive project-to-project references are a new feature of Visual Studio 2017 and Microsoft.NET.Sdk. This is intentional behavior.

See https://github.com/dotnet/sdk/issues/200.
