Luis Guerrero <guerrerotook@gmail.com> mailed me:

Not exactly, first of all i've been downloaded source code from Framework 2.0, and as WPF developer I need .net 3.0 and 3.5 source code too. So i make a copy of %windows%\assembly\GAC_MSIL into another folder and used my hacked version of mass downloader but only been donwloaded source code of Framework 2.0 once again, so I found and special folder inside program files, "Reference Assemblies" and inside there are V3.0 and V3.5 msil assemblies not NI images, and, now yes, i've been donwloaded source code with mass downloader. :) That's my investigation. The entire source code of V2.0, V3.0, V3.5 are about 7.070 files and 507 folders and it size 218MB

i think recursive loading can be added but there is a workaround,
try the following commandline switch:

netmassdownloader -d "C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5"
-d "c:\program files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.0"
-output
c:\cachetest -v

What would be a quick and easy way to download the source code (where available) for V2.0?

It is actually this:
It is for VS2005
netmassdownloader -d "c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727" -output c:\cachetest -v*

And for VS2008 it is even easier :)
netmassdownloader -d "c:\winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727" -v
