NuGet Needs Your Input

nuget, open source, code comments edit

Hi there, it’s time to shine the bat-signal, or better yet, the NuGet-Signal!

batman-sending-nuget-signalThe NuGet community needs your help! We’re wrestling with some interesting wide ranging design decisions and we need data to test out our assumptions and help us make the best possible choices. I won’t go into too much detail about the specific issue as I don’t want to bias the results of the following survey. I simply want to gather information about common practices by answering a set of questions that mostly have empirical answers.

I think it’s a given that most Visual Studio solutions consist of multiple projects. What’s I’m not so sure about is how often those solutions consist of multiple applications?

For example, is it more common for your solution to have a single core app and all of the other projects support that app?


Or is it more common to have a solution with two different apps such as two WinForm apps or two web apps?


So please answer the following questions:

This survey requires using a browser that supports iframes.

As an example for that last question, here’s the packages folder for a sample solution I created. It has four packages where there are multiple versions.


Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. I’ll follow up later with more details on what we’re working on.

And feel free to elaborate in the comments if you have more to say!
