    Really happy to see this. This caused random NuGet package restore issues when the CNAME chain for api.nuget.org exceeded a certain length.


    Our CDN provider ended up having a shedding mode in some hot areas that made the chain exceed the limit from time to time. Our multi CDN set up saved us so we could do geo specific failovers.

    As others have mentioned, you want NuGet. However, beyond the directory approach that was already mentioned, people may be interested to know that you can also do a web hosted version or if you prefer you can use the full NuGet Gallery project that powers nuget.org. At this point there's like 20 different ways to do it now. Hanselman had a list of some options a while back. BaGet is kind of interesting on that list.
