Subject [Lucene.Net] Nuget Gallery updates and how this affect
Date Tue, 06 Dec 2011 09:33:20 GMT
Hi guys,
as you might, or might not, have read, the new nuget gallery is out.

Changes that affect our pkgs are two:

Package owners are displayed more prominently. In the old gallery, the

Now our pkg page ( shows me, Prescott
and the prev owner of the pkg id as owners. And the community as
But in the list ( you
get only the owner names.
So, maybe, it would be good to create a team-wide nuget account to add
together with other accounts (like also MS is doing with it's own packages)
And I would also remove the prev owner from the list, if everyone is ok
with that.

Package unlisting. Packages can now be unlisted. This effectively hides the

That relates to the deprecated pkgs. We could hide the deprecated packages,
so they don't show up in the gallery when ppl search for lucene.
But they will still be used to resolve dependencies from other packages.
But, the downside is that ppl that directly downloaded the "old" lucene pkg
will not receive any update.
How do we want to handle that? We keep it like we did, or do we mark it as
