Provide MAT as NuGet package
MAT should be available as NuGet package. It could provide its own .targets file to process the xlf files. The .NET Core 2.0 runtime (and its bundled msbuild) should be a good foundation for a port of MAT that also runs under Linux/MacOS.
Provide MAT support via NuGet is under consideration.

Agree with Andrew Arnott: Just the current build tasks of MAT inside a NuGet package so it could build the .xlf files on a system (like a build server) without the MAT editor (or VS Extension) installed.
Shouldn't be that hard ;-).
(As soon as I'll have some time I might give it a try myself)

While xplat support is interesting, IMO that should be tracked separately. Merely moving the Windows-only version of MAT to a nuget package itself would be valuable.
