Is there any official documentation on how NuGet “discovers” available packages within a given Source? I have a “poor mans nuget source” i.e. a local share on my network, and I’m organizing my nupkg’s in a hierarchical folder structure. The Package manager is successfully is discovering them in the structure.. Win. My question is: is there any further reading somewhere in the docs about how this works?

Thanks!

NuGet just browse all files with the extension .nupkg in your local share and attempt to load them all.

it must be recursive discovery, which is good.
