The Register-PSRepository cmdlet registers the default repository for PowerShell modules.
After a repository is registered, you can reference it from the Find-Module, Install-Module, and Publish-Module cmdlets.
The registered repository becomes the default repository in Find-Module and Install-Module.
Registered repositories are user-specific.
They are not registered in a system-wide context.
Each registered repository is associated with a OneGet package provider, which is specified with the PackageManagementProvider parameter.
Each OneGet provider is designed to interact with a specific type of repository.
For example, the NuGet provider is designed to interact with NuGet-based repositories.
If a OneGet provider is not specified during registration, PowerShellGet attempts to find a OneGet provider that can handle the specified source location.
The first command registers https://www.myget.org/F/powershellgetdemo/ as a repository for the current user.
After myNuGetSource is registered, you can explicitly reference it when searching for, installing, and publishing modules.
Because the PackageManamentProvider parameter isn't specified, the repository is not explicitly associated with a OneGet packkage provider, so PowerShellGet polls available package providers and associates it with the NuGet provider.
The second command gets registered repositories and displays the results.
