NuGet configuration options

Nov 1, 2010 at 5:48 PM

Hey, just saw NuGet in use in one of the PDC videos, and wanted to ask a question of two...

We tend to segment our project repositories into a /lib, /src, /tools directory, etc. Typically, we put any external libraries in /lib (E.g. Elmah, NHiberante, etc.). From what I've read, NuGet puts these package files in a "packages" directory relative to the solution location. Is this configurable, so that I can, for instance, have a setup like this:

/lib/package1

/lib/package2

/src/solution.sln

It would appear that this is one of the most requested features and there is currently an issue open for it http://nuget.codeplex.com/workitem/215 but is currently not implemented nor has a release assigned to it.

It's assigned to vNext, since we won't get to this for v1. But the experience needs to be thought through as it might have a big impact on how things work today.
