Hopefully this is the right spot to post issues.
If you import a content type and then import another without renaming the first content type an error occurs because SPVSX tries to create a duplicate folder name. If you then import another one it complains that a folder called FolderName cannot be created and no content type is created.

Hi Simon,

Firstly thanks for providing details of this issue. We value all feedback about VSIX to ensure it provides the best possible development experience.

The import content type fucntionality provided with the Alpha release was a 'work in progress' to demonstrate the basic function of the complete item. We have completed this functionality in the current checked in source changesets. For alpha the import hard codes its working folder and also which content type to import so that we could test the SPI creation.

I'm more than happy to provide you with a pre-vNext VSIX package which includes the fully working import function, just contact me via CodePlex user or @weshackett on twitter with your details and i can email you it.
