Move Packages.config to the Properties folder?

Coordinator

Hi All,

There's a feature request to allow people to drag the packages.config folder to the Properties folder: http://nuget.codeplex.com/workitem/692

I was thinking we should have put it there all along. Most people don't need to ever look at it (it's a list of packages installed in a given project). So we propose that we move it there in the next version of NuGet and migrate existing occurrences. Thus the first time you install a package with the latest version of NuGet, we'd migrate packages.config to the new location.

What do you think? Is this a good change to make? Would you rather have package.config stay in the root of the project?

The Properties folder is optional. What would happen if there is no Properties folder?

Coordinator
Mar 30, 2011 at 6:25 PM

We’d create one and put it in there.

Mar 30, 2011 at 6:31 PM

What about websites (not web application projects)?

Coordinator
Mar 30, 2011 at 6:33 PM

Websites have a different behavior already. We could keep it in the root or potentially add a properties folder anyways. We’d need to decide the right behavior for that.

Mar 30, 2011 at 6:45 PM

I would keep it in the root. An alternative would be just not add it to the project file, that way people won't see it unless they click on 'Show All Files'.

It needs to be part of the project because it needs to managed by source control.

Mar 30, 2011 at 7:16 PM

Outside of tfs, that statement is bogus. ;)

Ha!

Well, some people use VisualSVN, VisualHG, SourceGear, Perforce, etc. that work with VS project integration. ;)

I wanna have all my "additional essential things" under Properties (Ressources, GlobalSuppression, ..) - and so also packages.config.

Only the developers daily work stuff should be in my ("normal") folders viewable.

+1 - great idea, would help clean up the project
