Authentication support for private repositories
As i got the state of the current code base it is not possible to authenticate through any HTTP supported mechanisms (Basic+SSL/NTLM/....).
The current architecture does not make it easy to integrate such a feature. The console window in Visual Studio does not allow to call unmanaged code as the credui standard networking credentials dialog.
I think it would be a great addition especially to corporate environments to be able to authenticate against a repository.
Are you interested in starting the discussion around this topic? Are there any existing plans?
