When a Razor view or partial view is added to a project, the file's Build Action is marked as None in the project file.  That does not pose a problem on a dev box when you have IIS targeted at your local working directory, however builds generated via a build server will not have the views included as part of the build output.  Conversely, aspx/ascx are marked as Content by default.

The result of this incorrect default build action is that runtime errors, in the form of missing views, are experienced when deploying to a test environment after a new view/partial has been added.
