  1. Public REST API for Visual Studio Marketplace

    It would be great if we have public VS marketplace API to fetch details like
    1. Details of particular extension
    2. Average Rating and Rating count
    3. Installs VSTS or OnPrem
    4. Get all the extensions for the publisher
    5. Get all the extensions of a specific category or tag

  2. Favorites

    Thank you very much for removing the Visual Studio Gallery and replacing it with something that doesn't even half of the functionality. Instead of waiting for the ability to have different Favorite configurations, we now have to ask to just have Favorites. It is extremely obvious that none of you are Microsoft dog-feed the systems at all.

    We need Favorites, multiple while you're at it, so that it is easier to rebuild systems, and/or share configurations with others that you are working with. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you can't even see what you've previously downloaded. Having a site…

  4. Rich integration with GitHub issues on marketplace pages

    Marketplace already highlights the number of issues if the extension is opensource and integrated in manifest. However, I like the way https://docs.microsoft.com manages updates to documentation with integration to GitHub issues. It would be great to have similar experience for extension pages.

  5. Allow responses to be in markdown while responding to Q & A

    Currently, in VS marketplace you can only respond in plain text and links shared in responses appear as text and not hyperlinks. Can you allow response to be posted on markdown please? So that we can link to other pages (public repos, gists, documentation etc) and also use text formatting options like lists and text styles like bold & italics?
