Simple sharing for your NuGet's, with help from a NuGet of course!

You've been Haacked - Hosting a Simple “Read-Only” NuGet Package Feed on the Web

"As you may know, NuGet supports aggregating packages from multiple package sources. You can simply point NuGet at a folder containing packages or at a NuGet OData service.

A while back I wrote up a guide to hosting your own NuGet feed. Well, we’ve made it way easier to set one up now! And, surprise surprise, it involves NuGet. Smile I’ll provide step by step instructions here. But first, make sure you’re running NuGet 1.2!

The meta nature of this simple appeals to me... Also for very quick and simple in-house NuGet package sharing, or probably even better for limited scope external sharing, this seems easier than setting up an Orchard Gallery server (remember that for in-house sharing you can you can share packages via file shares/UNC's too).

This seems like a good fit if you're looking for a quick and dirty web based approach to share your packages, those packages are fixed (i.e. don't change often) and you don't want to play the Gallery game...
