As NuGet continues to gain momentum, more Microsoft teams have been seeking to install NuGet packages from their Visual Studio tooling. This began with ASP.NET, where NuGet was born, when project templates started coming with pre-installed NuGet packages. More recently, we’ve heard of teams all across Microsoft with tooling gestures that result in NuGet packages being installed. We have some guidance we give these teams, but some have questioned our guidance. We’re here to ask if you agree with us or if you think we should adapt to meet the expectations of these other teams.
