Getting packages into the "Windows 8 Packages" feed

Hi,

I've just published a NuGet package (http://www.nuget.org/packages/Cocoon/) for a framework that is designed for developing Windows 8 Metro-style applications. When using Visual Studio Express 2012 RC for Windows 8 (note that this is the express edition) then the NuGet package manager by default only displays the "Windows 8 Packages" curated feed (https://nuget.org/api/v2/curated-feeds/windows8-packages/).

Does anyone have any advice on how to get packages included in this list - I understand that this is at least partially algorithmically generated.

Thanks,

Hi Andy,

We're working on a solution to auto-include packages in the Windows 8 Packages feed, but for now it's a manual process - I've included you in the feed and you should see your package in the list shortly.

Hi Jordan,

Thanks for your rapid response. I can see that package fine now. I have refactored some functionality into a separate package called "Cocoon.MEF" (http://www.nuget.org/packages/Cocoon.MEF) that I have just uploaded. Could you please add this to the "Windows 8 Packages" feed also.

Thanks,

Hi Andy,

Cocoon.MEF is now included in the feed.
