Exporting A SharePoint Site Into A Feature: Part 5 - Wrap Up

Part 1 – The Tools Part 2 - Exporting the Site Part 3 – Exporting the Lists Part 4 – Exporting the Site Columns and Content Types Part 5 – Wrap Up Before I begin with the wrap up portion of this post, I want to make a correction to this series.
