Description

LocalPackages        NuGet            False      C:\LocalPkg\
MyNuget              NuGet            False      https://www.nuget.org/api/v2
PSGallery            PowerShellGet    False      https://www.powershellgallery.com/api/v2

MyNuget              NuGet            False      https://www.nuget.org/api/v2
