Determine Target Framework(s) from OData feed

Is it possible to determine which target frameworks a package supports by just using the data in the OData feed? I have not noticed any such data being published.

I know that I can specify the targetFrameworks property when doing a search, but that is not what I am looking for.

The only alternative at this stage seems to be to download the actual package and inspect to contents of the package to determine which versions of the .NET Framework (or WinRT, PCL, Mono, etc) a package supports being installed to.

Not presently, no. It's something we're planning to support in the future though. And while our search presently accepts the target framework, we don't filter the results by it right now either--something else we plan to do in the future though.

Thank you for the feedback Jeff

Yeah I was curious whether the targetFramework in the search was working. It seemed to me at first glance that it did not really have any effect, but I did not spend time trying to figure it out.
