Automatically build *.symbols.nuspec packages

It's great that .nuspec files are automatically processed to build NuGet packages simply by checking the right box in the UI configuration. It would be great if that also automatically handled building the symbols package from a .symbols.nuspec file. The only difference in the command line would be the addition of the -symbols flag.

    Yep, we have such request in our TODO. Thanks!

    Great! Any idea on when it will be completed?

    (It would be really helpful if we could somehow get some visibility into the backlog in order to see what's already been submitted, planned, in progress, etc.)

    I was just about to ask for a similiar thing :) I usually don't have a separate .nuspec but either package (nuget Pack) with or without the -Symbols flag. So a checkbox in the deployments settings that en/disables that would suffice (for me).

    Checkbox for building symbol packages was added. In appveyor.yml it's:

        publish_nuget: true
        publish_nuget_symbols: true

    Feodor - could you clear this up for me: if I have the publish_nuget_symbols only (without publish_nuget) will it still generate a nuget package?

    Does specifying both generate two packages: one with and one without symbols?

    You should put both flags to generate NuGet packages and symbol packages.

    Could I just use publish_nuget_symbols? on its own if I just wanted a NuGet package with symbols?

    Nope, it just adds -symbols option to nuget pack.

    Thanks - that's completely cleared this up for me.
