why internal method signatures

Does anyone know why all the examples are using internal method signatures and if you use EventSourceAnalyzer.InspectAll you must have at least 1 internal method. It does seem to evaluate public methods, so that is good. What am I missing?

Hi Nick,

I'm able to do the following with all public methods. Is this not working for you?
namespace ESATest
    using System;
    using System.Diagnostics.Tracing;

    using Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.SemanticLogging.Utility;

    internal class Program
        private static void Main(string[] args)

            Console.WriteLine("Inspection complete");

    public class MyTestEventSource : EventSource
        public static MyTestEventSource Log = new MyTestEventSource();

        public void Startup()

        public void OpenFileStart(string fileName)
            WriteEvent(2, fileName);

        public void OpenFileStop()

I just realized that the Analyzer behavior I was seeing was also a symptom of using an interface contract. The following was causing all the problems and this is very disappointing for our infrastructure. An interface really should not break the Analyzer or Out of process but it does.

public interface IMyTestEventSource
void Startup();
void OpenFileStart(string fileName);
void OpenFileStop();

public class MyTestEventSource : EventSource, IMyTestEventSource

Could you send a pull request with a broken unit test? (You don't need to provide a fix.)
We'll be evaluating design changes later this month and this should be on the list.
You will need to sign a CLA, but the process is pretty painless now:

The issue looks like it is in EventSource.GenerateManifest

methods are excluded based on IsVirtual being true and a method that implements an interface returns IsVirtual : true. This seems a little ambiguous in terms of type information.
