Integrating Visual Studio Extension Gallery with NuGet Gallery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why not?

    Why doesn't MS leverage the NuGet Package Gallery to publish extensions as NuGet packages?

    Get rid of VS Extension Gallery. Half the time the extensions fail to install because of some dependency issue. NuGet Package Gallery will gather and install all the package dependencies for you.

    I also believe, the Windows Market place and the SharePoint 2013 App Store can both leverage the NuGet package gallery in someway in the future. In other words, there is an overlap between NuGet Package gallery functionality and the other stores.  :)
