I'm using the .nuget folder the v2 RTM release spits out.
When I Install-Package xunit.runners, the .nuget dir gains a packages.config.
When I do a an msbuild of a .sln file, no restore of solution level packages occurs.
Right now, as a workaround I'm doing a:
.nuget\nuget.exe install .nuget/packages.config -o packages
before MSBuilding the solution as I have [an equivalent to] a post build step that has a reliance on the tool per project so something needs to guarantee the precondition of the package being restored.
Is there a way I can/should trigger that? Should the standard targets be doing anything to assist? If not, what is the purpose of the file / who consumes it otherwise? Is it just the update notification process when one manages packages at the solution level?
