How can we improve Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS)?

Make Library Variable Groups available for use in Build Definitions

Currently, documentation (https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/release/author-release-definition/more-release-definition#variables) for Variables feature states:

"Share values across all of the build and release definitions in a project by using variable groups. Choose a variable group when you need to use the same values across all the build definitions, release definitions, environments, and tasks in a project, and you want to be able to change the values in a single place."

However, Variable Groups defined in the Library for Project cannot be used for Build Definitions. Only for Release Definitions.

I'd love this feature to be extended to support Build Definitions as well.
