NuGet package from feed is missing files that are present in build artifacts

This is very strange, and took a while to track down.

This build:

Produced a NuPkg file that was captured by this build artifact:

And the NuGet package feed Appveyor offers for this precise version of my NuPkg is:

Yet the build artifact file and the feed file are *not* the same. They're obviously from the same build because the git commit in the version number are the same, and the README file inside the NuPkg has the same content. Yet the tools folder that is present in the build artifact file is missing in the feed file. This causes the NuPkg to malfunction when installed from the feed.

Why, how, ... ?! What's going on here?

    Well, looks like it's symbols package getting published on the feed, not the main package. To be specific both packages are getting published and symbols override a normal package as they have the same packageId.

    Sounds like a bug, right?

    Thanks, Feodor. You're probably right. And yes, in general nuget feeds do not serve symbols packages. Can AppVeyor be made to only publish the non *.symbols.nupkg files?
