I suggest you ...

Include nuget references in the solution for purposes of source control.

After adding nuget packages to my solution, they should be referenced by in the solution explorer such that when I right click my solution and choose to check-in it will also check in the packages folders so that the references are updated for all developers. Currently this requires checking in from the project root through Source Control explorer or the file system.

Thanks for taking the time to share this suggestion. This item has been around for a couple of versions of Visual Studio and we haven’t acted on it. Looking at the VS “15” plans, we’re not going to take action on this item, so we’re going to close it.

    I have so many problems on my team with NuGet packages. I don't understand why they don't work just like any other file I add. This is the most infuriating problem I face today.
