Any chance of publishing this on NuGet?

Heya Francesco,

It would be really handy if MVC Controls Toolkit could be published to the NuGet gallery. I'd love to be able to include this library into my Visual Studio solution via NuGet.

For sure we will make a NuGet package that you will be able to install in your projects from visual studio. However, it will continue to be hosted on Codeplex.  This is not a problem for all users because you can handle in Visual Studio the Nuget package downloaded from Codeplex exactly in the same way you handle packages of the public NuGet gallery. Maybe the package will be available in a short time also for the current beta release.

The reason why we can't upload Mvc Controls Toolkit on the NuGet public gallery is that the license terms of Mvc Controls Toolkit and the one offered by the NuGet public gallery are not compatible. Specifically, the license of Mvc Controls Toolkit allows free use for commercial or not commercial purposes but doesn't allow derivative work for commercial purposes(that is building a commercial control library based on Mvc Controls Toolkit).
