How to fork with EF 5.0 + namingconventions code?

Is it possible?

More the better, will namingconventions code made available as feature enhancement to EF 5.0?

Else when is the release plan (dates and estimates) for EF6.

Hi Vairam,

The source code form EF5 is not available on CodePlex as described in this discussion:

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the "namingconventions code" but Code First conventions are being made public in EF6 as described here: and here:

We don't yet have any public dates for the release of EF6.

1. What is the changeset number in this source that has EF5 + changes to split libraries

2. What is the changesets for code naming conventions only..

I am looking at an option to fork with these two or JUST the option1. I would like to change the default foreign key column naming convention from <EntityKey>_Id to <EntityKey>Id.

Hi Vairam,

As explained in the link I posted above, there isn't a way to get EF5 with or without just the changes you want. You can do what you want easily with EF6, but not with EF5.
