Consider renaming the command text "Add Library Package Reference"

description

First of all, this dialog can do both install packages and uninstall packages. Calling it "Add" is not entirely accurate.
Second of all, in the console, we renamed Add-Package to Install-Package a long time ago. Hence, "Add" is not consistent with the console.

Let's call it "Manage NuGet Packages".

We're using "NuGet" here to denote the type of package.

Verified that Add Library package reference has been renamed in the context menu for project, website and solution and also under tools menu

Manage maybe? "Manage Packages"

I'm thinking "Library Packages Manager", similar to "Extension Manager".

Maybe "Package Manager". I want to move away from "Library Package". Alternatively, we could call it "Manage NuGet Packages".

In my opinion 'Package Manager' or 'NuGet Package Manager' is the most accurate and it's similar to 'Extension Manager' as well.

Consider this for NuGet 2.0. There's a lot of existing info/docs/videos out there using the existing menu.

Unless you want to submit a patch, we probably won't fix.

Fixed in changeset: http://nuget.codeplex.com/SourceControl/changeset/changes/e67cc4aacf46.

Rename it to Manage Library Packages.

In our iteration planning meeting, we all agreed to change it to "Manage NuGet Packages". Otherwise we'll confuse customers.
